An awful name. I'm not big on feminized forms of male names in general, but feminized forms of *ugly* male names are even worse!

I have been loving Ernestine lately. While it doesn't sound the most modern, I appreciate names like that, plus the variety of nicknames is nice. I like it a lot more than Ernest. I feel the same about Eugenie, which is strange.

Ettie, Etta, Essie, Ness/Nessie, Tess or Tina could be nicknames.

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.

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.

A famous bearer is American blues/jazz singer Ernestine Anderson (born November 11, 1928). Referred to as "the best-kept jazz secret in the land" by TIME magazine in 1959, she's noted for a number of award-winning recording over a five-decade career, including "The Toast of the Nation's Critics", "Never Make Your Move Too Soon", and "Blues, Dues & Love News", amongst many others.
