Having a little girl in a couple of months, all being well, but we cannot agree on any names!! Scarlett is about the only one we both like.

I loved it when I was younger, as I loved "gone with the wind", but then Scarlett johansen came along and made it all popular angry

Do your kids know lots of little Scarletts? What do you think of it as a name?

Thank you!!

My 6 year old has a Scarlett in her class, other than that we don't know any others. I love the name.

I know two little Scarlett's.
It's a lovey name.

It's not too popular and is not too out there. I'd say it was fine.

I know one, I don't think it's overly popular and its a lovely name

I know two, and they live 400 miles apart.

I’m not keen but massively prefer the Scarlet spelling. Scarlett makes my eyes hurt

I don't like the scar shortening

StellaTins Wed 17-Jan-18 19:32:40

I find the scar bit unappealing

Ponshuspirate Wed 17-Jan-18 19:33:27

I love it, it's a very pretty, feminine name.

Thanks everyone!! Completely agree with scar - would Lettie/leti work as a nickname, do you think?

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 17-Jan-18 19:35:40

I love it ! ❤️

I know a Scarlet. She's 6. Sometimes people call her scarly but not often. Its a gorgeous name in my opinion but much refer the one T spelling.

I wouldn't say the revival was down to Miss johansson

My son has 1 Scarlet and 1 Scarlett in his year of 60.

I'm a teacher and would say the trend is 1 child every other year out of 3 form year group.

So it's not really common but definitely heard of. Yes, Lettie would work!

I know one, she's 2yo. She's a really nice little girl and she suits her name. Her mum gets a bit cross when people call her 'scar' though.

Lettie seems a more likely shortening to me. Popularity wise it looks like it peaked in 2013 and is on a downward trend now:

🤔I'm not keen. I don't like the harshness of the Scar sound. All I hear is scar and that conjures up all kinds of images. What about Juliette?? Similar, but softer.

LastGirlOnTheLeft Wed 17-Jan-18 20:12:31

Or Juliet, even nicer.

Scrumptiousbears Wed 17-Jan-18 20:19:04

I have a Scarlett so it's a yes from me.

mondler Wed 17-Jan-18 20:50:34

I never used to be a fan but it's really grown on me recently. Very pretty.

Rebeccaslicker Wed 17-Jan-18 21:02:04

Ah, I love Juliet but DP has vetoed it. Honestly, he vetos everything I like angry - and he wants Aggie!!!!

DrRanjsRightEyebrow Wed 17-Jan-18 21:03:46

If DS was a DD she would have been Scarlett/Lettie

ChocolateCrunch Wed 17-Jan-18 21:04:02

I like it. I know 2, one aged 4, the other 7, both always called by their full names.

LaughingLlama Wed 17-Jan-18 21:05:52

I know a 16yo Scarlet known as Kettle to her school friends.

LaughingLlama Wed 17-Jan-18 21:07:06

Lettie NOT Kettleshock damn predictive text/auto correct!!
