Henry Cavill is one of Hollywood’s finest actors. From portraying a duke to a red-caped superhero to demon-slaying Geralt, the actor has a knack for embracing enigmatic characters, not to mention his connection to huge movie franchises. The actor was the definitive choice for James Bond and years later, in 2022, he’s set to once again play the next James Bond.
Aside from being the legendary spy, Cavill was also the first choice to play Edward Cullen in Twilight. His loyal fanbase and the actor’s dedication to his craft ensure that every project he takes on is a success. So of course he made a name for himself within a few years. But did you know there’s more to Henry Cavill’s name?
Henry Cavill has a very interesting middle name
Among the many attractive aspects of Henry Cavill is the fact that he is British. Something about the actor’s blue eyes and deep British accent makes him look like he’s straight out of a Disney movie. That’s not the only thing that makes him look like something out of a Disney movie, though. His full name is actually Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill.
His name definitely sounds like a duke from a respected family. Many actors change their names or use shorter versions of them as prompted by their talent agencies. While Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill might seem like a royal name, it’s also too long.

Cavill takes his middle name from his mother, Marianne Dalgliesh, who is of Irish, Scottish, and English descent. The actor always had one of the most heartwarming things to say about his mother.
“My mother. An extraordinary, powerful, tough, intelligent, resilient, kind, thoughtful and caring person,” he wrote for his mother on International Women’s Day. We also want to thank Cavill’s mother not only for giving the actor a very regal middle name, but for giving us such a precious actor.
Henry Cavill is currently gone The Witcher series after three great seasons. And the actor’s future as a superhero in the DC or Marvel Universe seems unclear. Previously, rumors of Cavill being part of Marvel’s X-Men were in full swing as he hadn’t been seen in his red cape in years. But thanks to Dwayne Johnson, we got to see him as Superman again. And now we are again waiting for the next role of Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill.
