Top Girl Names Ending in T

The most popular girls' name ending in T is Scarlett, thanks more to actress Scarlett Johansson than to Gone With the Wind.

Along with Scarlett, other girl names ending with T in the US Top 1000 include Violet, Juliet, Margaret, Margot, Elliott, and Bridget.

Then of course there are those names that don't technically end with T but with the T sound: Charlotte, Juliette, Celeste, Kate.

Unique T ending names for girls that we recommend include Britt, Dot, Frost, Harriet, Kit, Millicent, Scout, and Witt.

A T ending works well if your surname starts with a vowel or with a consonant that sounds distinctly different from T, such as K or S. T endings are more difficult with last names that start with D or T.
