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.

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...

I've never got used to nicknames as in derived from my real name. One person has called me Caz, one called me Floss, my name is Karen (a Scandinavian form of Catherine I believe) and I answer to Womble.

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.


Trying to set up some more Blackadder jokes?
