I suppose you could have the John Henry connection with Henry John. It's more obscure but a possibility.
My experience with my kids' names has been the middle names really aren't used that often -- except to get their attention when they are in trouble, and early on when you're taking them to the pediatrician ALL the time. I wouldn't be at all surprised to have a nurse or doc glance at a chart and then comment about how he was named for the President. Would that be annoying? Or would you feel embarrassed to yell HENRY TRUMAN across the playground? I don't know that it's a deal killer but yes, I do think people will auto-correct whether they see or hear the name, just because Henry and Harry are so similar, and pp is correct about Harry also being a nn for Henry.
Good luck!Expecting an October surprise.
Under Consideration: Apollos, Ragnar, Mordecai

I wouldn't do that! I like both names a lot though!
