This crimson color makes a sophisticated and vivid impression as a girls' name. It leaves an indelible mark, thanks to actress Scarlett Johansson and Gone With the Wind heroine Scarlett O’Hara. The double-T is the most popular spelling and is trending in the top 20. That’s miles away from where the name debuted on the Social Security Administration rankings in 1940, a year after the movie was released. Musician Jack White and model and actress Molly Sims have daughters named Scarlett, while Sylvester Stallone’s daughter Scarlet has only one T to cross.
