I love love love this name but since my fam speaks mainly spanish, I think they would have a hard time pronouncing it. They will probably add an E at the begining and say it like "Es-car-leht" which is a horrible way to mess up such a beautiful name. Lately though, I've been thinking that I shouldn't care if they can say it or not. I love it tooo much for me not to use it. I have seen this name used on hispanic girls (which is not a common thing). Anyway, so what do you think I should do?? Also, what spelling do you prefer Scarlet or Scarlett? What are some NNs and MNs for it?

Thanks for reading.

I definitely think it is a pretty name, but not a name that I'd personally use. I think I prefer the Scarlett spelling.

I adore Scarlett (this spelling). It's very spunky and girly, and would be a lovely choice. Some nicknames I can think of are Carly, Etta, and Ettie - that might be easier for your family to say.

I'm not certain of your naming style, but some middle name ideas:

Scarlett Alexandra
Scarlett Eva
Scarlett Eloise
Scarlett Madeline
Scarlett Bianca
Scarlett Ivy
Scarlett Mattea
Scarlett Rachel
Scarlett Victoria
Scarlett Vivian

I've always preferred it spelled with one T. Scarlet. Like the colour. But I think I may be alone in that preference.

I like Scarlett. It's very pretty. I don't know of many nicknames, though.

I like it spelled Scarlet. If you LOVE it as much as you say then use it. Make sure to tell your family how to say it and if they still say it wrong then oh well. She will still have a beautiful name that you love
