Origin:French
Meaning:Red
Scarlette is a feminine name that gives off more French vibes than Scarlet or Scarlett. Scarlette comes from Old French and was initially used as an occupational surname for merchants of fine cloth. This striking title evokes vivid imagery of luscious red tones and was a color associated with shameful women. However, author Margaret Mitchell of Gone with the Wind revolutionized the name in 1936 with her vivacious main character Scarlett O’Hara. A name steeped in fiery feminine power, Scarlette will suit a baby who strives to overcome anything life throws at them. Scarlette has remained in the Top 1000 name charts since 2011, most likely due to its colorful aura and chic pronunciation.
