Gender: F Meaning of Colette: "victory of the people" Origin of Colette: French, diminutive of Nicole Colette's Popularity in 2014: #522

Modern parents might be attracted to this name because of the French novelist -- though pen name Colette was actually her last name, Sidonie-Gabrielle her first.

Colette was one of a group of Gallic 'ette' names popular in the 1950s and sixties, including Nanette, Annette, Jeanette and Paulette, but by 1986 Colette had dropped off the list completely--though we think it could be ready for reappraisal. Dylan McDermott used it for his daughter, as did actress Constance Zimmer.

There is an appealing animated Colette featured in the film Ratatouille.
