NAME OF THE DAY

Henriika FINNISH

This name derives from the Old High German name “Haimirich”, composed of two elements “*haimaz” (home, house) plus “*rīkijaz” (kingly, royal, noble, mighty, distinguished, powerful, rich). The name means “ruler of the home, sovereign of the homeland”. Harry, its English short form, was considered the "spoken form" of Henry in medieval England. Most English kings named Henry were called Harry. At one time the name was so popular for English men that the phrase "Tom, Dick, and Harry" was used to refer to everyone. The most famous patron Henry II (Saint Henry), was Holy Roman Emperor from 1014 until his death in 1024. The last member of the Ottonian dynasty of Emperors, Henry II, succeeded to the German throne following the sudden death of his second-cousin Emperor Otto III in 1002. Henry was born on May 5, 972, the son of Duke Henry II, Duke of Bavaria and Gisela of Burgundy.
