: Does anybody know what the h stands for, and where it came from?

This question came up a while back. I (from the U.S.) said it was "Howard" but our British host says it's "Harold." And it comes from some naughty person changing the phrase "Hallowed be thy name" to Harold (or Howard) be thy name.
