Baby names with CAR (letter sequence spelling “car”)

steering wheel

Are you a car-lover looking for a baby name?

If so, here’s a fun list for you: names that contain the word “car.”

Top baby names with CAR

First, a quick rundown of the most popular names with CAR, according to the current U.S. baby name data.

Top girl names with “c-a-r”Top boy names with “c-a-r”
Scarlett
Caroline
Carmen
Scarlet
Carter
Carolina
Carly
Scarlette
Cara
Carsyn
Carter
Carson
Carlos
Oscar
Ricardo
Carmelo
Carl
Cartier
Giancarlo
Carlo

Now here are the same names again, but this time around I’ve added definitions, variant forms/spellings, and links to popularity graphs.

Cara

The name Cara comes either from the Italian word cara, meaning “beloved” (which is how it’s used in the name Caramia), or the Irish word cara, meaning “friend” (as in the case of Cara Delevingne).

The name is also sometimes spelled Carra, Carah, and Caragh.

Carl, Carlo, Carlos, Carly, Carolina, Caroline + Giancarlo

The “carl” element of all seven names above — Carl, Carlo, Carlos, Carly, Carolina, Caroline, and Giancarlo — can be traced back to the Germanic name Karl, which meant “freeman” (i.e., not a serf or slave).

Feminine forms of these names include Carla, Carlota, and Carlotta. Diminutive forms include Carlito and Carlitos.

Variant forms of Caroline include Carolyn, Carolynn, Carolyne, and Caraline.

The name Carly is also sometimes spelled Carlee, Carley, Carleigh, Carlie, Carli, or Carlei.

Carmelo + Carmen

The name Carmelo was derived from the Marian title “Our Lady of Carmel.” The Biblical place-name Carmel means “garden” in Hebrew.

The name Carmen is a variant form of Carmel that was influenced by the Latin word carmen, meaning “song.”

Other forms of Carmelo include Carmela, Carmello, and Carmella. Carmel itself is also used as a name.

Carter

The name Carter comes from the English surname that originally referred to someone who’s occupation was transporting goods by cart or wagon.

Cartier

The name Cartier — which is closely associated with the French jewelry brand — comes from a French surname that has several possible derivations. In some cases, Cartier is synonymous with Carter (see above). In other cases, it refers to a location.

Carson + Carsyn

The name Carson comes from a Scottish surname of unknown derivation.

Variant spellings of the name include Carsyn, Carsen, Carsin and Carsynn.

Oscar

The origin of the name Oscar isn’t known for certain. If it comes from Old Irish, it’s made up of elements meaning “deer” and “friend.” (The second element, cara, is the same one the gave rise to the name Cara.) If it comes from Old English, on the other hand, it’s comprised of elements meaning “god” and “spear.”

Ricardo

The name Ricardo is made up of Germanic elements meaning “ruler” and “hardy.”

A variant form of the name is Riccardo. The feminine form is Ricarda.

Scarlett, Scarlet + Scarlette

The name Scarlett comes from the English surname that originally referred to someone who was employed as the maker or seller of a bright (often red-colored) woolen cloth called scarlet.

It was put on the map by fictional character Scarlett O’Hara in the late 1930s.

The name is also sometimes spelled Scarlet (like the color itself), Scarlette, Scarlotte, or Scarlytt. Modern Hispanic variants include Scarleth, Escarlet, Escarlett, and Escarleth.

(Before we leave this section, I just wanted to note — for all my fellow lefties out there — that both Cara and Carter are typed entirely with the left hand on a standard QWERTY keyboard.)
