I would call a henchman simply "Hench".

I mean, as a first name. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

(And what about "henchwomen" ? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> )

henchmaid... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/stupid.gif" alt="" />

Henchbutler ? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/delight.gif" alt="" />

When you find a big kettle of crazy, it's best not to stir it.
