Kids Bloom – Parenting Advice – all about your baby, toddler, child & you!
Shortly after discovering I was pregnant I started thinking about baby names. I did what I believe most new parents do and Googled it! I couldn’t believe the results. Popular baby names, unique baby names, trending baby names, even “geeky” or “emo” baby names! Basically, you name it and I’m sure at some point I came across it.
Much like everything in life, sometimes the best names just come to you randomly when you aren’t searching for it. One day my SO said “What about Scarlett?” It brought an immediate smile to my face. Scarlett… I love it!
“Traditionally a last name for a dyer or someone who sells rich, bright fabrics, it means “bright red.” Well-known Scarletts: actress Scarlett Johansson; Scarlett O’Hara, the heroine of Gone with the Wind; Will Scarlett, Robin Hood’s sidekick.”
My father, who passed away in 2013, had the beautiful Italian last name “Scarlata” and in honor of him we decided to name our beautiful baby girl Scarlett. We also agreed on her middle name “Cecilia.” Not only was my father from Cecily, Scarlett’s great grandmothers name was also Cecilia. We were happy to have a meaning behind her name and to this day, I’m still proud when I tell about it.
