Match baby's vibrant aura with the feminine name Garnet. This rare moniker derives from Middle English and Latin garanatus, meaning "seed-like." It's shared with a dark red gemstone named after the colorful seeds of the pomegranate. The garnet is also the birthstone for January. Unlike Ruby, this name is a rare gem! Garnet was most popular in the late Victorian era when wearing tiaras and necklaces with pyrope garnet was popular. Baby will love their name's sophistication and vintage charm!
