    Albert vs Ernest

    I'm really liking Albert and Ernest (thanks to Louis Tomlinson's mum, however her girl's choice - Doris, will never make an appearance in my lists), but, thanks to their nicknames (though I'd never shorten Albert to Bert), I cannot use both in a sibling set (Bert & Ernie -.-).

    Which name do you prefer, Albert or Ernest? What MN would you pair with your favourite of the two?

    Florence, Edith, Doris, Alice, Elsie, Lillian, Violet, Mabel, Ada, Evelyn
    Eva, Edna, Minnie, Martha, Amelia, Phoebe, Sylvia, Hazel, Agatha, Beatrice


    Matthew, Ernest, Louis, Christopher, Andrew, Albert, George, Joshua, James, Harry
    Freddie, Henry, Adam, Teddy, Daniel, Percy, Mark, Walter, Stanley, Liam

    I like Albert over Ernest. I don't like Albie I think just Al would be much better and I don't mind Bert/Burt at all, think of the manly Burt Lancaster.

    Ernest no way but I don't mind Ernie.

    Ernest is fine, but I much prefer Albert.

    I love alliteration so I would be tempted to go with something like Albert Arthur.

    I also like the sound of Albert Eames or Albert Edric.

    Sorry, but I'd expect either to get beat up on the playground. As a mn, if I had to choose...prob'ly Ernest. Ernesto or Alberto might fare better.

    Such a hard choice! I think I prefer Ernest as a full name, but I have a verrry pleasing association with Albert so I voted for it. I like both Albie and Bertie as nicknames. Not a fan of Ernie, sorry!
