Gender: F Meaning of Arlo: "barberry tree" Origin of Arlo: Spanish

Arlo is a name with several unexpected lives thanks to celebrity associations. It was first known as the name of folksinger Arlo Guthrie, son of Woody; then it was revived by television's "Justified" character Arlo Givens. Now it's been spun again as a girl's name first by actor Johnny Knoxville and then by celebrity couple Leighton Meester and Adam Brody, who chose it for their daughters. And since Arlo sounds so much like hot girl names Harlow and Marlowe, we say why not?
