Name In Trend: Scarlett

Heard of any little Scarlett's lately? Odds are, you have.

Scarlett is a name of old french origin, and means "red", so you can use it as a color name if you wish. Scarlett was first used as a given name in Margaret Mitchell's novel "Gone With The Wind", which featured heroine Scarlett O'Hara. It is also a hollywood name, thanks to actress Scarlett Johansson, and it is also the middle name of one of Mick Jagger's daughter Elizabeth.

Let's take a closer inspection at the name Scarlett and its popularity throughout the years:

Scarlett first appeared briefly in the 1940s and 1960s, but it wasn't until 1992 that it was here to stay. Between 1992 and 2000, the name went up and down in popularity, never really taking off. Then after 2000, the name exploded, and has been rising ever since. 2011 was also the first year Scarlett appeared in the top100, and something tells me this is just the beginning of its ascension, and should be here to stay for a long while.

Similar sounding names are: Scarletta, Charlotte, Carla, Juliette, Annette, Harriet, Garnet
Alternative spellings are: Scarlette, Scarlet, Skarlett, Skarlette, Skarlet.

Personally I quite like this name, and I think it'll continue to rise sharply. What are your thoughts?
