When/why did Hank Aaron become Henry Aaron?

When I was a kid, I remember hearing about the great Hank Aaron. Now, decades later, I always hear/see him referred to as Henry Aaron. Of course I realize 'Hank' was short for Henry all along, but why the change in what he is referred to? Did he at some point request that he be called Henry instead of Hank?
