This would be a really cute name for a cat, but I'm not sure I would name a kid this.
-- arrowhead909  8/24/2005
Felix means happy, it comes from feliz.
-- EvelynMoura  8/31/2005
Felix does mean happy (as well as lucky), but it doesn't come from feliz; feliz (Spanish) comes from felix (Latin).

Felix is the name of a food product company in Sweden. It had never occured to me that this could be a problem, but then I got to know a boy named Felix, and he actually got teased for Felix Ketchup! Children can be so horrible, they will always find a way to tease if they want to. I think it is a lovely name regardless.

Felix is a better name for a cat than a human.

Forget the cat; it's Felix from Golden Sun: The Lost Age.

Felix is my father's name, and his mother is called Felicia, the feminine form (they are both Italian). Judging by the number of people who say that they would only give this name to a cat, the name is more popular in Italy than it is here in the UK.

I like this name as a short/pet form of other names, like Felicity or Felicia. I think it suits girls as well, and I wouldn't call my son Felix.

Felix King is a character in L.M. Montgomery's 'The Story Girl' and its sequel, 'The Golden Road'. These stories were used for the basis of the TV show 'Road to Avonlea', which also included the character.

Not one of my favorite names, I think of a great cat's name when I hear this name.

The Latin pronunciation is FAY-licks.

Tony Randall portrayed "Felix Unger" in "The Odd Couple", 1970's tv show. Jack Lemmon portrayed him the the 1968 movie of the same name.
-- Laurea  7/24/2006
I absolutely love this name. A name from the past and for the future. I understand a few early popes were named this. As far as the old Felix the Cat reference, only baby boomers might have issues with this name. Great name!
-- quemy3  8/13/2006
To the comment before me, I'm 14 and Felix still conjurns images of a cartoon cat. Maybe my train of thought is more common here in the USA,

Felix is normally used as a man's name, but I discovered that my great-grandmother Maria was known as Felix Maria on her marriage certificate in 1880. Very strange!
-- patsanders  12/5/2006
I like the name and love the meaning, but am troubled by the cat and odd couple associations.
-- earthnut  1/17/2007
I really like this name. It's sweet & has a great meaning. It's a classic that's due for a revival. My husband has a hard time with the Felix the Cat association as well but I think overall this name is very attractive.
-- Kitten  1/19/2007
I personally don't care for this name, however, I think it makes a terrific name for a cat. (I mean no offense to anyone)

The Seattle Mariners have a really good right-handed pitcher named Felix Hernandez.
-- bettefinger  3/28/2007
I love this name like a brother. It is so cool. Good cat name. I just like it. It's my favorite name of all-time.
-- Anonymous User  3/28/2007
I think this would make a cool girl's name. You know, for a tomboy. But more for a character in a book than an actual person.
-- Georgia_kh  4/10/2007
I think this name is cute.
-- spaz123  4/15/2007
This is my favourite male name. I think it is beautiful and strong.
-- Anonymous User  4/22/2007
Felix is such a cool name. Sure, my only exposure to the name is through the cat, but that's no more discouraging than Raphael being a cartoon rebel turtle.
-- RedGyl  6/12/2007
Love, love, love this name! The only drawback is possible teasing about the cat connection. Otherwise it's a handsome name with a cool meaning.
-- Anonymous User  6/18/2007
My nephew (3 years old) is called Felix Reuben ***** and I think it's lovely.
Nobody I know thinks it's strange. Some people have made references to Felix the Cat but not in a bad way. And I don't think the kids at school are going to tease him about it because they won't know about Felix the Cat. The only downside is not being able to find mugs, key rings, pens etc with this name on them as gifts.
-- skycladdryad  7/30/2007
Also Spanish.

My 3 year old son is Felix and we get such positive remarks about his name. It's rising in the popularity ranks amongst hip urbanites both here in Sydney and in the UK also I believe. It has risen alongside such names as Hugo and Jasper, so I'd class it in that style of names. We don't mind the cat association as we're mad on cats. It is rarely that someone comments on that aspect. We embrace it, and he has a Felix the Cat plush toy. I like that the cat thing puts some people off using it. Otherwise it'd be in danger of entering the Top 100 I think. A sweet, happy name for my beautiful little boy.
-- miss  1/12/2008
This is a perfect name for any boy, although I had a lot of negative comments before I had my son, I still used it. It's not common and hopefully there will not be another one in his class at school.
-- lani  2/3/2008
Sounds like a name for a cat, and quite old-fashioned. The racist meanie George Felix Allen has utterly ruined this name for me.
-- slight night shiver  4/22/2008
"Licks". Yuck. Just another "urban hipster name". Hip parents won't like how popular this one is getting. I have the same feelings on Theodore and Jasper.

Horrible. What an awful start in life with this name. In the top 100 New Zealand baby names for 2006. Oh why?

I love the names Felix and Félix. And I hope that Brangelina never use this name. (They like names ending in 'x' for their boys.) They already ruined the name Vivienne for me, so I hope they never use Felix. Felix is a cute name, very unique, and also strong.
-- Anonymous User  8/3/2008
People don't just like Felix to be "hip" or "urban" or different. I like Felix and my other half loves it, and we have no desire to 'make a statement'; the other names he likes are more in the Megan and Logan vein! I only hope it *does* get more popular, then it might lose the image it seems to have. I find Felix a likeable name for a friendly, lively, smiley boy. And Brangelina can use it a thousand times over, for all I care. If I use it, it'll be because I love it, not because I want to stay one step ahead of the Hollywood crowd.

Here in Holland, Felix is a brand of catfeed.
-- Kaat5  8/23/2008
LOLZ, that is fitting. No, I can't like this one. It's a lost cause. I don't know why it's suddenly so hip and happening.

Felix is one of the Volturi gaurd in Stephenie Meyers Twilight Series.
-- outsiders_fan  9/15/2008
Try as I might, I can't warm to it. It will belong forever in the Hipsters' Axis of Trendy with Jasper and Hugo.
-- Anonymous User  11/24/2008
It's a shame that it has such religious connotations. Otherwise, it's a great sounding name.
-- vomiting  5/22/2009
It's one of my new favorite boy names. And for everyone who is picturing a cat, if you actually meet someone named Felix, you won't picture a cat anymore, you'll picture that person. So what's the big deal? It's strong and sexy sounding :)
-- UnicornMacMac  5/25/2009
There's a kid's book about a rabbit named Felix who travels around the world. Every time I hear Felix, I see that rabbit.

Sometimes I like this name, and other times I don't. Felix is a strange name.
-- Anonymous User  7/23/2009
I just adore the name Felix. It is top of my list should I have a 3rd boy. I don't think a cartoon character sharing this name, means it is a bad name choice. I just think whoever named the cat had good taste.
-- honeyhdz  8/10/2009
I've never heard of Felix the Cat, whatever that is, and I'm 15. Future parents of baby Felix, rest assured, whatever effect that cat had on the world of names is dying out.
-- Diest  11/21/2009
I think this is a really nice name, but I probably wouldn't use it just because of the cat food affiliation. Good name for a cat, though! :)

Felix is the town saint of Zurich in Switzerland (together with Regula, his sister, and Exuperantius their servant, whose name was added to the two only in the late middle ages). I actually know brother and sister who were baptized Felix and Regula, but that is, I think, a bit too much… Name day is September 11.

Felix Salten (pseudonym of Sigmund Salzman, 1869-1945) was an Austrian author who wrote the novel "Bambi".
-- AlanPalgut  2/15/2013
Ahh I love this name. It's so uncommon, but not unheard of. I think it would suit a person very well, not just a cat. It's a great name for either :) I don't know what it is, but something is just so cool about this name!
-- Oohvintage  6/10/2013
Felix seems like a cool name. It's not common in my country either.
-- Almonds  7/25/2013
My two year old is named Felix :) I have yet to meet anyone else with the name, as it has always been relatively uncommon in the US. Everyone seems to love the name, although I have gotten a few comments from older people about the cat. Nothing bad, just mentioning it. We didn't choose the name to be 'urban hipster', we just liked the name and thought it went well with our other sons' names. Some people like old names, but that doesn mean they're trying to make some big statement when they use them. The name is quirky but can be taken seriously, and would suit a jock as well as a more educationally inclined boy. There is no stereotype for the name. I admit it's not everybody's cup of tea, but if you like it, go for it. If someone doesn't like it, hopefully they have the decency to keep it to themselves.

I love this name. I like how it's old fashioned but still sounds really cool and edgy. I would definitely use this!

I think this is a great name, but it was nearly ruined for me by Pewdiepie, who is an annoying, untalented, painfully unfunny youtube channel.
-- Ali Hassan  7/31/2014
I think this name is great for humans, but it seems to be used primarily for pets, particularly cats. (My grandma had a cat named Felix and my daddy called him "Flea-lix.")
-- Ruta Graveolens  8/7/2014
Ugh. What a horrible name! Makes me picture a cat (I do like cats but saying that the name is more suitable on them)
On a person it's preppy, silly.
Makes me think of an obnoxiously feminine male with too much botox or product on his face and his parents have a shit load of money.
So Felix makes me think of a cat or a gay male or at least a preppy male.
Don't name your child this. It's also way too trendy
A better alternative is Callix.
