Rhett is the Anglicized form of de Raedt, which was a Dutch surname. The name itself is derived from the word “raet,” which can be translated to mean "advice" or "counsel." The Welsh translation of the name is "enthusiastic" or "passionate." Despite the popularity of Gone with the Wind, the name Rhett did not start becoming popular in the United States until the middle of the twentieth century.
