I've always loved this name. There's just something sweet, charming, soft, and old-fashioned about it. I would not hesitate at using it on a child of mine, as either a forename or a middle name.

I love the name Ernestine. It was my grandmother's name who I was very close to until she passed away. I plan on making it the middle name of my first daughter. Plus, it goes great with the first name I would like to use for my daughter, Briar.
