Personal experiences with the name Felicity: | Edit

I named my daughter Felicity and people always comment on how beautiful her name is. This name has it all - it's classic, feminine, uncommon (but not unusual), has a great meaning and ages well. For 4 syllables, it's very light on the tongue, like "Olivia" or "Elizabeth".

We named our 4th Child and 3rd daughter Felicity Ann. I get positive feedback all the time on how beautiful her name is. A friend even named her online Boutique after Felicity! Her name suits her as she is a fun, happy little girl and has brought much joy into our home. I sometimes call her "Flicka" for short and I think it sounds so cute!
