Ernest

Variation of the German word "eornost." Influenced by short-story writer and novelist Ernest Hemingway, who received the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 for the "Old Man and the Sea." He also received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. Oscar Wilde's play, "The Importance of Being Earnest" also comes to mind. Peaked during the late 1800s and has steadily declined.
