The Importance of being Earnest

Ernest Hemmingway

"Baby name meaning and origin for Earnest"

Is Earnest a first name? I seldom look very carefully in the spam on because I get a lot.  This was a comment left on  on a post called "Buying a House - Earnest Money Question"

Author Ernest Hemingway that's him above and below in the baby announcement...

Singer Tennessee Ernie Ford (spelling Ernest was the least of his worries.) His real name was Ernest Jennings Ford, he was from TN.  I have trouble with TN and CT.  Mississippi is a piece of cake for me.   Spell check fixed the mess of S's and N's that was Tennessee. 

Actor Ernest Borgnine


Baby names

Is the name as a first name ever spelled Earnest?  Isn't the name always spelled Ernest?  I am scared to look at the baby name site, it is probably just a splog.

Did you ever see "The Importance of being Earnest?"  In the Oscar Wilde play two men say their name is Ernest, but they are not acting in earnest.  I believe their real names are Algernon and Jack.... I must have seen the play long ago.  Or in another life.  Or read it.

There are earnest money changes coming in the Columbus Board of Realtors Contract... or maybe it is in our Real Living HER contract? Effective April 1, 2009 there will be some changes in Earnest money.

What is Earnest Money gives the definition from Real and more.  Earnest money is offered by a buyer to a seller in a transaction and shows the buyer is acting in good faith.

Earnest Money is relatively low in Central Ohio.

Spam link edited.  It is not a safe site.

Yes, the name Ernest can be spelled Earnest, but it usually isn't...  (Can you tell I have an Ernest in the family?  He often gets things addressed to Earnest.)

OK I thought of you and thought of asking you...  I could not find anyone named Earnest.  I tried.  I found it as a last name though....

Actually I looked at a baby name site which is a tad less spammy than the link that is broken up there... I need to edit out a letter or two so no one looks at it, it set off my PC's security system... I should know bettter ) and it had a listing that said Earnest is English and there was another thing that said Earnest is German.
