An important note on this website's comment on the martyr-saint from Carthage named Felicitas (Felicity): she was a Christian slave, and Perpetua was her *mistress*. Mistress is the feminine form of master. Please use it. In this context, it has nothing to do with a sexual relationship. If you want to avoid using the term altogether, just say that Felicitas was the slave of Perpetua (or belonging to Perpetua), a young Christian noblewoman, with whom she was martyred.

Perpetua was a 22-year-old married noblewoman, and a nursing mother; Felicitas was pregnant and gave birth to her baby before being martyred with Perpetua. Carthage is in modern-day Tunisia in North Africa.

I think it is a pretty name. It is also my grandmother's name.

This name and its meaning could come from the word FELICITATION meaning good luck/congratulations! which is a very nice meaning! I think it's pronounced Fe-Li-SEE-tas/Fe-LI-si-tas if that helps anyone!
