Gender-neutral Hennie doubles as an endearing name and lofty title in preparation for the rightful air to the throne. Meaning “sovereign of the homeland,” Hennie is a Dutch and German name derived from Haimirich. Sharing the same roots as Henry and Henrietta, Hennie began as a cute nickname and now shines as a stand-alone title. Hennie is also considered a form of the place name and surnames Henny and Henney from Old English, with the topographical meaning of “island land partly surrounded by water.” A name enriched with the magic of the land and the importance of leadership, baby Hennie may feel empowered with this sweet regal title.
