Origin:French
Meaning:noble warrior
Arlette is an unusual French feminine name whose melodic sound suggests a fairytale quality. The name's origins are largely uncertain, though many trace Arlette to the Old German Herleva. Composed of the German elements harjaz, "army leader," and erlaz, "noble," it would seem Arlette is best defined as a "noble warrior." Boasting beauty and brawn, Arlette may allude to happily ever afters, but its bearer is one unafraid to write their own narrative.
