This name is borne by the phenomenal Canadian guitarist/folk singer Garnet Rogers. I can never see it as a girl's name because of that. I like it -- it's original without being too weird.

I prefer this name for a guy. It has a bit of a harsh sound to it.

There is a book containing this name within the title: Miss Garnet's Angel by Sally Vickers. However in this instance Garnet is the surname of Miss Julia Garnet.

I live in Eastern Canada and Garnet is fairly popular around here as a man's name - or at least, it was popular fifty to seventy years ago. I quite like it, might revive it someday!

According to, Garnet is a variant of #Warin#, a tribal name, or it comes from the placename #La Varenne#, "game-park".
