I think this name is pretty, and I'm surprised about how under-used it is. I've read many books that were published thirty to seventy years ago that were dedicated to young children named Felicity.

Famous bearers of this name include Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman, the TV show Felicity and my sister in law. ;)

"Felicity" was a t.v. show in the late '90's about a college girl with the same name. She was played by Keri Russell.

Felicity is a very beautiful name.It makes me think of butterflies, if you get what I mean.
-- FairyGirl  7/21/2006
I love the name Felicity, and I would consider using this name if I had a daughter. I think this name is beautiful, classy and sophisticated, and I like that it’s not overly used. I think Lis or Lissy would be a good nickname for Felicity.
-- TiffanyS  8/30/2006
I guess I'm weird but every time I hear the name Felicity I think of the word infidelity. So to me, it's a name for girls with 'questionable morals'.

Felicity is a great name for a girl, very pretty and easy to grow up with. I like the meaning of this name also.
-- Anonymous User  9/29/2006
Felicity sounds happy and, looks happy, and means happiness! It makes me think of butterflies! I will certainly consider this name when I have a daughter because it's beautiful in a fun way. It also looks lovely on paper. Lissy is a cute nickname, too!
-- Aangelz287  11/12/2006
Just hearing the name makes me happy. It's really pretty and makes me think of a really fun-to-be-with person.

When you say the name Felicity, it sounds like "facility" and "electricity". I think that it is a really good name to remember words (e.g. FACILITY, ELECTRICITY) by.
-- Miracle1980Olympics  1/13/2007
I love this name. Whenever I think of it, I always think of happy things. Heh. If I ever have a daughter, I might consider naming her this.
-- x___bangpop  2/28/2007
Felicity is such a pretty name. It makes me want to smile. I adore the nickname Lissy. I think that Felicity and Allegra would make great names for twins.
-- YMPvt  3/4/2007
This is such a great name - both classy and spunky at the same time! The American Girl Doll of the same name left a lasting impression of what this name means to me. So whenever I hear Felicity I think of a headstrong carrot-top who has a strong sense of right and wrong.

In one of my favorite novels (which I read at the age of eleven and made a strong impression on me), most of the female characters were described as being beautiful. Except the character of Felicity, who was described as having "an extraordinary similarity to the back end of a tram." Ever since, I associate this name with a physically unattractive woman. I know it's not fair, but I can't get it out of my head.
-- queenv  10/1/2007
Several lovely nicknames: Lis, Lissy, Fee, Lissa.
-- Anonymous User  3/22/2008
The name may be quite commonly used on baby girls today, but it sounds very old-fashioned. Plus, the name is quite sappy and corny, and it's a bit cutesy as well, so I wouldn't want to use it. Many people would assume the TV series inspired you, and that tends to create a rather unflattering impression.
-- slight night shiver  5/24/2008
This is a pretty name, but it sounds like facility.
-- Hushpuppy  10/13/2008
I love the name Felicity. It's so pretty and feminine, and it's not too popular. I'd definitely use this in the future, let's just hope it doesn't get too popular. :)
-- Anonymous User  10/20/2008
A beautiful name, very easy to grow up with and has a great variety of nicknames. My best friend's sister is named this, and she's called Floss or Flick, which I think is adorable.

This name is so pretty and it has a nice ring to it. On top of that it has the best meaning ever! Happiness! I might consider naming my future daughter Felicity Joy.
-- kool_babe14  5/26/2009
I think this name is a lovely-sounding name. I think it sounds youthful and full of life, but could also work on somebody older, I suppose. But yes, and overall a very lovely, regal-sounding name.
-- walesgal92  6/21/2009
I love this name! If I had a daughter, I think this would be the top name on my list. It means happiness, and everyone wants their kid to be happy, right? It seems to be rather uncommon, so it would be seem unique without being a made up name. It can be sophisticated for an adult, or a beautiful name for a young girl too. It's feminine and when I think of it I think of a shy and kind young girl who is creative. It is an old fashioned name, but I think it's much better then some older names, and you don't automatically think of an old lady. It is very hard to tease this name and there probably wouldn't be anyone by this name in your class.
-- Summah  6/29/2009
I think this name is absolutely gorgeous I would definitely name my kid this.
-- iceskater735  10/28/2009
YAY! This is my name! I don't really think it fits me, but still I like it. It is a very unusual name. I have, however, met two other Felicity's in my life.
-- fuzbel  11/21/2009
I think Felicity is an adorable name. It even SOUNDS like happiness. This might be a bad description but it is "frilly and bouncy" a very childish name. I can't help it but this name brings a smile to my face.
-- Milena Scialfa  12/30/2009
Omg, it's so cute. It's grown on me.
-- Chrila96  10/22/2010
Extremely cute name. The combination Felicity Joy is corny though.
-- Chrila96  11/6/2010
Very nice name, sounds just what it means "happiness".
-- ajdsoto  12/27/2010
I just love this name! When I finally have kids this would be one of their names. I only know one other person with this name and I heard a mom call for her daughter with this name so I don't think it's too common yet. It's classy and it can be used for when the girl is older and younger.
-- teenagewriter  1/20/2011
Felicity is a pretty name. I've always liked it. Whenever I think of someone named Felicity, I think of this bright, cheery girl (also I think of the AG doll, but whatever), which is coincidental since the name means "happiness". It's a pretty name for little girls, and you can shorten it to Lissie or something.
-- blondieboo629  7/7/2011
Felicity has recently made it onto my favourites list for girls. It's just completely gorgeous and feminine without being too cutesy. It ages well and has an abundance of great nicknames- Fee, Lissy, Elle, et cetera.

This name is also used in French, but I believe it is rare. In French, it is Félicité. [noted -ed]
-- la-petite-rachel  7/20/2013
I had a Felicity doll, so I really like this name. I'd probably call her Χαρά, (Greek for joy), because any kid I have would have to have a Greek name, and I have several cousins called Χαρά. It's not a common name in Greek, and they mostly anglicize to Joy, but Felicity is just so lovely and the meanings are close enough.
