Felice Schragenheim was a Jewish woman forced to go underground in Berlin during WW2. If you want to learn more about her tragic but fascinating life read the book "Aimee & Jaguar" by Erica Fischer or watch the movie.

In Sweden Felice is used as a female name, as a variant of Felicia.

I prefer the spelling of “Felix” then Felice, Felice remains me of a fluffy coat.

As already mentioned, Felice was sometimes used as a feminine name in German-speaking countries (and is slowly being rediscovered at present).
One more or less well-known bearer was Kafka's fiancée, Felice Bauer.

Also used as a female name in Italy. An example is Felice della Rovere, illegitimate daughter of Pope Julius II (c. 1483).

Proper pronunciation of the Italian Felice:


Pronounce the "E" in "Fe" as in "Pen". Stress the "I" in "Li". A "C" before an "E" (ce) is always said as an English "Ch", and being paired with the "E", equals "Chay". [noted -ed]

Felice Peretti di Montalto was the birthname of Pope Sixtus V (Pontificate between 1585-1590).

I wouldn't use this name on a boy, but I think it would be pretty on a girl with the pronunciation fə-LEES.

I think this is the name of Ravenclaw's head of house and Charms teacher in Hogwarts: Felice Flitwick.

Nope, that's Filius Flitwick, and he's a guy. ;)

Anyway, this is such a pretty name. I love it pronounced "fell-eece," like "fleece" with an extra syllable. I also waver between it and Felicity--not always sure which I like more, but I think it depends upon the surname. Felicia's nice, too.
