Ernest

Name origin: English and Dutch

Name meaning: from the Germanic byname mentioned at Ernst. However, Reaney cites medieval evidence for Norman spellings such as Ernais, and derives it from a Germanic personal name Arn(e)gis, possibly composed of the elements arn ‘eagle’ + gīsil ‘pledge’, ‘hostage’, ‘noble youth’ (see Giesel). The name may have been altered by folk etymology to coincide with the word meaning ‘combat’. Compare Harness.

 
Tubb

Name origin: English

Name meaning: from the Middle English personal name Tubbe, apparently derived from either Old Norse Tubbi or Old English Tubba (an unattested form, evidence for which is found in the place name Tubney, Berkshire). There is no evidence to support the suggestion that it might be a metonymic occupational name or nickname from Middle English tub ‘barrel’.
