Harleth Origin and Meaning

The name Harleth is a girl's name of English origin.

Harleth is a name which probably stems from combining the oh-so-trendy Harlow with the evergreen Elizabeth. However, literary parents may also remember the beautiful but difficult character Gwendolen Harleth from George Eliot's Daniel Deronda. Harleth has a fashionable edge to it, being associated with rising supermodel Harleth Kuusik.

We think that Harleth is a pretty alternative to Harlow and hope to see more of it.

It's not just you. I've actually wondered if Gwendolen Harleth's name was supposed to bring the word "harlot" to mind, although I don't think she's particularly harlot-ish-- just breathtakingly spoiled. (Which isn't such a great association for a child's name, either.)

It looks quite interesting, but I do think it sounds like "Harlot" said through some missing teeth and a really bad lisp.

Is it just me or is this even closer to "harlot" than Harlow is? If it weren't for that danger, I would actually somewhat like it.
