In the US, most university history professors and such pronounce it "Hen-ree-shun." Among British professors, I've heard both "Hen-ree-shun" and "Hen-ree-cee-en." I think the second is probably the more completely correct pronounciation, but the first is perfectly acceptable.Hen-ree can is incorrect.
I vote for #1 That's always the way I've heard it.
phd historian, an English professor of mine in graduate school once told us, "Don't even consider becoming a writer until you know what the adjectival form of your last name will be." I doubt that Henry (7 or 8) ever gave this a thought, but I find it strangely apropos! *LOL*
I'm lucky ... the adjectival form of my last name is "Edwardian," pretty straightforward.
The correct term for Henrician is Henreeceeen.
