Jean Harlow (born Harlean Carpenter), the original platinum blonde bombshell, was a symbol of 1930's glamour, a factor that first Patricia Arquette and then Nicole Richie and Joel Madden probably had in mind when they gave their daughters the distinctive surname name Harlow.

Harlow has been rapidly catching on with other parents, moving up over one hundred places this year. It entered the list for the first time in 2009, one year after the arrival of Ms. Madden. Harlow would fit right in with contemporaries Arlo and Marlow(e).
