Prince Harry is really Henry and why do those two go together?
Wikipedia suggests Harry is the shortened version of Henry - now my maths isn't brilliant but I can count up to at least 5 and they have the same number of letters based on the number of fingers I have
It's the speed of saying the name, isn't it?
Henry has quite a long first syllable and, if you say it quickly, it becomes Harry.
Harry was the Medieval English form of the Germanic name, Heimiric or Henry.More information about names & alternatives, here:http://voices.yahoo.com/nicknames-john-became-jack-other-odd-nicknames-765885.html

So are you a Peter or a Pete? Or do you not mind? My brother is Peter. He isn't fussed really which you use.
I'm mainly Peter, but sometimes my wife calls me Pete. So does my dad. My older brother calls me Pedro, which I hate.
I'll answer to anything as long as its not intended to be derogatory. I get called SC, Caz, Cazzy, C in real life, as well as a few variations on my real name.
I'm Katherine, now called Kate, used to be called Kitty by my family. Sadly when my friends found out they tried to resurrect it.
Kate was my choicde because I got so pissed off with nobody being able to spell Katherine...

My uncle was named Bernard, but was always called Bunny. I didn't know that this wasn't actually his name until I was about 12. I've never been very keen on my name, but not to the point where I could be bothered to change it.
