Origin and Meaning

English name

Transferred use of the surname meaning 'person who sells or makes clothes made of scarlet' [1] [2] [3]

The word scarlet = 'rich cloth' (often, but not necessarily, bright red), derives from a short form of Old French escarlate ='scarlet (color), top-quality fabric', from Medieval Latin scarlatum = 'scarlet', 'cloth of scarlet', probably via a Middle Eastern source, from Medieval Greek and ultimately from Late Latin sigillatus = 'clothes and cloth decorated with small symbols or figures', literally 'sealed'

As a given name it was popularized by the central character in the novel Gone With the Wind (1936) by Margaret Mitchell. The full name of the character was Katie Scarlett O'Hara, the middle name representing her grandmother's maiden surname.
