I love the name Garnet for a girl. I have a character by the name of Garnet, and I think it is lovely. Her full name is Garnet August Black. Very pretty. Garnet is my birthstone, and it would make a perfect name for someone with red hair.

The name has a rather harsh sound to it.

Ooh, pretty name! I love the colour and the way the gem seems to stand out as a glittery January birthstone. I love this name!

This is my personal favorite name. It's absolutely beautiful. I consider it a girl's name. It does not sound harsh to me, rather it's strong and powerful.

Sounds a hair-bit harsh!

Yuck. It sounds kind of like granite... It also sounds really modern, so I'm surprised to see that it's not. At least it has the classic/old fashioned aspect going for it. But I do not like the sound of this name.

I like it, despite the fact that "Garnet" actually means "the yarn" in Swedish!

Actually "the yarn" in Swedish is pronounced "Ett garn", not "Garnet". So there's no need to worry.

I like this name, and I'm definetely going to use it for a character in my stories. :) It's as vibrant red and sassy as "Ruby", but "Garnet" is a lot less common and a lot more old-fashioned, pretty good for a British girl in my opinion. There's a character named Garnet Barker in "Double Act", a novel by the English writer Jacqueline Wilson.

I do not think this name sounds harsh. I think it's a very strong name for a girl and may suit both a child and a grownup. Garnets are also the birthstone of January, so it's a great name for a girl born in the month.
