Scarlett Johansson is doing more for this seductively southern name than Scarlett O'Hara ever did. Sylvester Stallone's third 'S' daughter, following Sophia and Sistine, is Scarlet (one 't', as in the color) and The White Stripes' Jack White and Karen Elson also have a Scarlett. The Mick Jaggers were ahead of the curve when they chose Scarlett for the middle name of their daughter Elizabeth in 1984.
In the Margaret Mitchell novel, Scarlett was the main character's grandmother's maiden name -- she was actually named Katie O'Hara. The name entered the Top 1000 in 1940, a year after the movie of Gone With the Wind was released. Scarlett moved up several places for the fourth year in a row to Number 22.
One of the leading characters on TV's Nashville is named Scarlett O'Connor.
