Comments for SCARLET:

I really like "Scarlet" more than "Scarlett". I don't know why. I guess its spelling is more unusual. I would name my daughter like this.

Whenever I see this name, I'm instantly reminded of the term "scarlet woman" for obvious reasons.

A sort of famous bearer of this name is Miss Scarlet, the beautiful young woman in Cluedo.

The first daughter of Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page is Scarlet. I can't decide whether or not I like it with one or two t's. If I had a son I would name him Phoenix and possibly my daughter Scarlet. Both bear the meanings of a deep, dark red, which is cute. It seems to look overdone as "Scarlett" but "Scarlet" is the straight color that you WILL find on a Crayola crayon.

This spelling has a longer period of use as a girl's name. It's beautiful and full of zing. I would rather see this over muddy Sienna.

Scarlets were very fine and expensive woolen cloths. Common in Medieval England. Scarlet cloth could also be green, blue, brown or white. The most common was crimson or carmine red hence Scarlet now being chiefly a colour word.

During the reign of Henry VIII, crimson/carmine red Scarlet was forbidden to servants. It was considered a very distinguished color. Some laws even forbade certain "classes" from wearing it.

From the Cambridge History of Western Textiles (D T Jenkins)

"In all Western European languages the words for 'Scarlet' developed first as a noun for the textile itself and only later became to be applied as an adjective to describe the colour. Furthermore, even though many woolen scarlets did indeed have that rich red colour, perhaps most by the very end of the Middle Ages, many had instead been dyed in a wide variety of other colours - and some were even considered to be 'white'."

Vivacious. I think I like it a bit more than Violet which still feels a bit fuddy duddy despite Garner-Affleck using it on their child.

Melanie Chisholm aka Sporty Spice's daughter is Scarlet (Starr). Starr being the surname of Scarlet's father, Thomas. Scarlet with Starr seems a bit flamboyant and cheesy.

Scarlet is the name of the little girl in Silent Hill Homecoming who was sacrificed for a weird ritual, and is also the name of the monster that "she becomes", the giant doll you fight in Hell Descent. Because of this, I really like this name.

This name is very unique, and Carly would be a good nickname.

I have a love-hate relationship with this name. I LOVE it because it is not very common and it is very fiery and intense; but at the same time I dislike it for the fact that I have heard that a "Scarlet woman" refers to a prostitute, and it also rhymes with harlot, which is another term for a prostitute.
"Scarlet Willow" was at the top of my girl's name list for a while, but it trickled its way down for the reasons stated above. I would not want anyone to make fun of my future daughter and tease her about the name.
Are there any Scarlets out there who have had this problem?

If you name your kid this, she's bound to be called Scarlet the harlot at some point. This is a name that should be left as a color and not used as a name.

Scarlet is my name and I love it. Everyone comments on it and how beautiful and unique it is. I love my name. I always tell my mom, if she wouldn't have named me Scarlet, I would name a kid Scarlet. I really like how it has the color spelling. I feel special with my name! My friends call me Scarlet usually, but some call me Scarly/Scarli and Scarleteee!
