Now, about 'Harrys', I didnt claim in any of my previous posts that the English 'Harry' came from Greek 'Harrys'. All I said is that 'Harry' is indeed closer to Greek 'Harrys' than to Norman 'Henry'...and isn't that a fact???
No, what Cleveland is saying is that the pronunciation of Harry is the same as the Norman pronunciation of Henry - they were the same name in Norman times. There is no logical or linguistic connection with Harrys.
