Scarlett is a girl's name of French origin, meaning "red". The name is derived from the color scarlet, which is associated with courage, passion, joy, and heat. In medieval times, scarlet was an occupational name for fabric dyers and cloth merchants who sold vibrantly colored materials, particularly luxury wool cloth produced in Europe. The color scarlet has also been associated with the Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church, who wear scarlet robes as a symbol of the blood of Christ. The name Scarlett gained popularity due to Margaret Mitchell's best-selling novel "Gone with the Wind," in which Scarlett O'Hara is the protagonist. The name has been well used in recent years for girls in the United Kingdom and the United States. It has ranked among the top 20 names given to newborn American girls since 2021 and has also ranked among the top 100 names for newborn girls in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom in recent years.
