Meaning:Home ruler
Henning is a boy's name of Old German origin, meaning "home ruler." This distinguished choice can be traced back to 15th-century East Prussia. It's likely derived from the surname Henneke and, in turn, Johannes. Somehow, Henning embodies both old-world, country charm and vintage glamour. Perhaps its relation to the name Hans and the well-traveled Hennessy is behind its aura of mystery and intrigue. Plus, while a new arrival will always rule the heart and home, your darling Henning will make each day spent together an absolute delight!
