Scarlett Patricia Moon is the daughter of Michael Moon and Janine Malloy and she is the half-sister of Tommy Moon. The courts gave Michael custody of Scarlett although after Michael's death, she was given to her her mother Janine. Her middle name is dedicated to Janine's step-mother Pat Butcher.

Scarlett's name

Michael goes behind Janine's back and names their daughter Scarlett Patricia Moon. Scarlett was born 3 months prematuren and Janine wanted to call her Patricia or Margaret, presumably after Peggy Mitchell and Pat Butcher. Michael and Janine soon settled on the name Scarlett.

She is 11 weeks premature via Caesarean section on her parents' wedding day and has no heartbeat, so is placed on a ventilator. Scarlett's condition stabalises and she is baptised, with Janine deciding to change her name to Patricia. However, she starts to regret using the name Patricia, and Michael registers the name Scarlett. 


Concerned with Scarlett's deteriorating health, her parents organise a christening for her at the hospital with her uncle and step-cousin, Ricky Butcher and Whitney Dean, as godparents. Janine and Michael bring Scarlett home on 7 August, and Janine worries as there are no nurses to help. On 14 September, Janine leaves Walford without Scarlett, leaving her in the sole care of Michael. Michael struggles and asks Roxy Mitchell to look after his daughter and later hires Alice Branning as her nanny. Janine returns several months later for Scarlett, and manipulates Michael into giving her custody, denying him access to Scarlett. Janine then hires Alice. When Janine tells Michael she plans to change Scarlett's name from Moon to Butcher, Michael strangles her, so Janine takes out an injunction, stopping Michael from seeing Scarlett. Michael then plans to murder Janine, telling Alice they can take Scarlett and flee the country. However Alice tells Janine and when she confronts him, Michael attacks her. First Alice, then Janine stab Michael and he dies, leaving Scarlett with only her mother. When Janine is arrested for Michael's murder, Carol Jackson takes care of Scarlett, but says that she will live with her aunt Diane Butcher.</p>

It was reported in May 2012 that the character of Janine would go into labour on her wedding day to Michael, three months early. It was then reported in June 2012 that the baby would be named Scarlett Patricia Moon, after Janine initially decides to call her Patricia, after her former stepmother Pat Evans, who died earlier that year on January 1. However, when she has second thoughts about the name, Michael registers the new name without telling her. A source from EastEnders said, "With a mother like Janine, this little girl is sure to be a fighter. Scarlett was portrayed by a prosthetic baby until the episode broadcast on 7 August 2012, when she was played by a real baby.
