The French pronunciation sounds much more appealing then the English form. Henri sounds more elegant than plain old Henry.

I like this way better than Henry because I think the French pronunciation sounds richer in some way. It was my late grandfather's name (he wasn't French or anything, it's just sort of a tradition in my family to have a French name) and I might use it as a middle name for a son later.
