actually I meant to say it was from the Ojiway native tongue, and yes , south eastern Ontario. I was born in Brantford, with many friends from the Six nations

When I got married my wife came with her cat (also a dishwasher and a piano - but that is another story) named Elsa, after the Lion. When Elsa passed on she was replaced with a rescue cat, promptly named 'Millennium Falcon' (Star Wars) by our young son. This fortunately was easily shortened to Millie. Well Millie went to join Elsa and was replaced by Henry, the Labrador. My wife is a musician and insisted that 'Dog' should have a musical name. I suggested Bach but this was not well received. She promptly picked up her musical dictionary and opened it at a random page - Henry Purcell. So Henry it was.

My future daughter-in-law also has a black labrador called Harry, quite a popular name it seems - Harry & Henry are of course synonymous (as in Prince Harry (Henry)).
