Meaning of the name Scarlett
According to BabyCenter, Scarlett is an English name that means “bright red.”

Sometimes it is spelled “Scarlet,” although both versions have the same meaning.
The popularity of the name Scarlett has grown over the years, coming in at number 18 on 2019’s popularity list.
The name Scarlett is often associated with a fiery personality, and perhaps even a little stubbornness.
