"I am currently pregnant, and if we have a girl, we are naming her Scarlett. I do have friends who make fun off the name, but I ABSOLUTELY adore it. I am obsessed with Gone with the Wind and always promised I would name my daughter after Scarlett O'Hara!" Jul. 19, 2011:

"My daughter's name is Scarlett...I really liked the song Scarlet Begonias by the Grateful Dead. I had to hold myself back from giving her the middle name Begonia though. I added the extra "T" because everyone was spelling it that way on baby shower cards." Sep. 2, 2010:
"My second daughter is called Scarlett Emily Grace (born 11 months ago) and we picked it for its mix of strength and femininity. I tend to think of Scarlett O'Hara rather than Scarlett Johansson though and my baby is a beautiful, dark-haired, blue-eyed, independent, feminine girl. Stunning name and everyone adores it." Feb. 13, 2010:
"My baby daughter is named Scarlett. I always loved the movie Gone With the Wind, so when we found out we were expecting a girl, we settled on Scarlett. Our daughter is adventurous, headstrong, and beautiful, just like Scarlett O'Hara. Before she was born I could tell she'd be a spitfire, so her name suits her well. If you're expecting a baby girl and you have a feeling she'll be fabulously independent, this may be a good name for your baby." Feb. 9, 2009:

"I had this name and I disliked it so much that I legally changed it a few years ago. Have been so much happier since then. Growing up with the name "Scarlett" was horrible! You get called "O'Hara" all the time, and your only possibility of a nickname is "SCAR." It's embarrassing. Also, no one ever remembers to spell it with two T's. It is one of those names that older people love and think would be wonderful to "bestow upon" their daughters, but it ends up creating more trouble than it's worth." Nov. 18, 2010:

"My names is Scarlett and I have never really thought about the name I love it how when you reading it had my name but with no double t I do love the name the only thing I am not a fan of is nicknames. The only one there is is SCAR which is not that nice but overall I like the name" Sep. 3, 2017:
"My name is Scarlett-Rose, I think It's a really nice name, but it is becoming increasingly popular.
However you will never find the name "Scarlett" on any kind of gifts that have prinited names, so I wouldn't class it as a common name." Mar. 2, 2010:
"A very beautiful name, but it has become so synonymous with Scarlett Johansson that it has lost much of its appeal for me." Apr. 12, 2009:
"I love this name!! I have ever since I first saw "Gone with the Wind" when I was seven. My sister and I always fought over who got to be Scarlett when we played Clue when we were little. I want to name my first daughter Scarlett Paralee!" May. 16, 2008:
"This girl I knew at school was called Scarlett, She had blonde hair and blue eyes and was gorgeous so i always think of it as a pretty name" Dec. 12, 2007:
"My brother and his fiancee Caroline are planning on having a child within the next few years. They decided that their child would be named "Scarlett" or "Josephine." My brother wants "Scarlett," and Caroline wants "Josephine." I, however, want "Scarlett Josephine." When my brother had first mentioned this name to me, I didn't like it much; I absolutely LOVE the name now!" Jul. 27, 2006:
"I love my name but people spell it wrong. When I was younger people would make fun of it by calling me scarlett fever, scar face, and many other things. As I got older I fell in love with it." Jul. 14, 2005:
