I just think of "Bye Felicia!" now. I don't really think it's ghetto, though.

My name is Felicia and I'm 42... growing up I was the only one that spelled it Felicia the others were with Ph... So I researched it in high school and found out that the English way of spelling it was Ph... Felicia is actually French and the correct way of saying it is (Fuh-leas-cee-yuh)... but back then the English had a hard time saying it so they just pronounced it their way Phlisha, Phelesha, Phlicia, Phelysha... etc... etc... My dad named me after the woman Felicia off the Soaps back in 1976-77... She was French... And my brother after Mr. Conrad the heavy set bald head man off T.V...

I like this name. I don't think of "Bye Felicia," I think of Felicia from Fire Emblem. I like how it sounds, too.
MintLemonadeBerry  10/24/2019
Felicia is my name so don't be afraid to have this name. Even though the phrase "bye Felicia" is out there. Don't be shy on standing up for yourself, also don't let it get to you that much. Be what the name means. Happy times/Happy things/Happy. Course I'm proud of my name. Felicia Rose. You can have your name be whatever you want it to be. Don't be ashamed of your name.

There is a comment below us that bothers me. I understand the word ghetto is racist and saying Felicia is a "black person's name" is racist also, but you don't have to be racist, either by saying that Veronicas, Maries, Brittanys, and Traceys are "white people names", and that we all come from the cheerleading squad.

Hello, my name is Felicia!

Felicia, Felicia, Felicia! And, I’m not going anywhere! :D

Felicia was my great grandmother’s name, my aunt’s, and my cousin’s middle name. And, it is not a ghetto name. What does a “ghetto name” even mean? Because it could have a “shuh” sound to it? Because a black man said it to a black woman in Friday based around getting high in a black neighborhood?

So, can I say Tiffanys, Veronicas, Maries, Amandas, Traceys, Kaylas, Melissas, Lisas, Courtneys, Brittanys, Ashleys, Christinas, Chloes, are coked out, self entitled, white privileged, whores from the cheerleading squad? Insert any white girl name I missed. I mean, since ignorance is the common theme with names anyway, lol. (Omg! Like totally! Riiiight! Like, what is your damage Heather!)

To assume things about anyone based on their name is very stereotypical and ignorant. To assume anyone with the name Felicia, or any name with the “shuh” or “ai-ee-shuh” sound is ghetto, is stereotypical and racist. I say racist because most of these people with that name, or with similar pronunciations, are black.

You are definitely someone I want saying bye to me because I would not want you in my presence. Saying “Bye Felicia” to me is like God removing toxic people from my life without me really having to do the work. So, yes thank you Friday for coining the term! Thank you to anyone who ever said “Bye Felicia” to me. (Psst! I did not like you anyway and you did me a favor).

To the Felicias out there reading this, keep your head held high and be proud of your name. You are not ghetto, you are not going anywhere, you are relevant, and your name means happiness as well as ‘fortunate’ and that’s what we are.

If someone wants to say, “Bye Felicia” to you, let them! Who cares! It’s a saying: “Bye Felicia, Bye Felicia, Bye Felicia!” See? No one died.

Give no power to them over your name. Don’t feel bad about it, don’t change your name, and yes, use the name for your children. It’s a beautiful, smart, funny, happy name, and by all means, use it!

I have met Felicias before and after “Bye Felicia” was popular, so the name is not dying or going anywhere. If someone says “Bye Felicia” because they want to feel like a cast member of Friday, Straight Outta Compton, or Housewives, let them. Probably the highlight of their day and how sad. :( *tear*

Anyway, if they’re saying “Bye Felicia” then good riddance to them and see it as a blessing.

See how fortunate us Felicias are. We get to watch all the toxic crap walk right out of our lives without ever having to lift a finger. Well, except maybe one. Lol. ;D.

Why, just why I have never found my name on anything growing up?! Now it's just another catch phrase.
“Bye Felicia”. No. Just no.

Felicia seems to get more hate than a similar name, Felicity. I do like Felicity but in my opinion, Felicia is prettier.

"Bye Felicia"

It's such a ghetto and stereotypical name. Do not name your child Felicia.

This is my beautiful grandmother's name. It's also my third name, after her. She is such a kind and inspiring woman, and her name is vivacious and bright, just like she is. She was always so kind to me and still is, and her youthful spirit at her current age is truly inspiring. Love you, Grandma Felicia.

Another famous bearer is Felicia from Fire Emblem: Fates. She is Corrin's maid. She joins the player's party early if Corrin is male and later if Corrin is female.

I honestly don't know how "Bye, Felicia!" caught on so much *today* as opposed to, say, 20 years ago when Ice Cube famously said it in the movie "Friday." Twenty years is a long time for a line in a movie to become part of mainstream culture.

That said... it's a shame that phrase will deter people from using the name, because one of my childhood best friends was named Felicia. It was always a pleasant name to hear, and she was the only Felicia I knew.
erb816  12/22/2015
Felicia would be a rather embarrassing name to have nowadays. If you aren't active on social media you may not be familiar with the phrase "Bye Felicia", but it's a popular term that's pretty much used to say someone is irrelevant. Think twice before using this name.
― Anonymous User  7/6/2015
Modern slang uses "Bye Felicia" to refer to someone who doesn't matter so much, that they are now called Felicia. Not a bad name in my opinion, if it weren't for the term.
livie42  12/12/2014
I love the name Felicia. It's stylish, cool, chic, beautiful, amazing, mature, professional and gorgeous. The English pronunciation "fə-LEE-shə" is the best in my opinion & I adore the meaning of this name. Overall, I find the name Felicia a perfect name for a girl! :D.

Personally reminds me too much of the word Feline, but probably because of the cat girl Felicia from Marvel vs Capcom.
goodolenoname  7/7/2011
I really dislike this name. The pronunciation fe-LEE-syah is just about bearable, I suppose, but the pronunciation fe-LEE-shuh sounds very ghetto and is frankly disgusting! :S

The Spanish pronunciation of Felicia is so pretty. I don't like the English version.

This name belongs to singer Fefe Dobson as well as "Fo" Porter from Cycle 12 of America's Next Top Model.

Felix is a common name for male cats, so Felicia would be a good name for a female cat.

Phylicia Rashâd, the television actress best known for her role as Clair Huxtable, bears a variant of this name. This makes me always think of a motherly yet down-to-Earth person with this name.
mhavril39  6/3/2008
This name is pretty much über-feminine and very frilly, it sounds a bit like a ghetto name with the ending, and it reminds me of the word 'fellatio'. Too cutesy, not serious enough.

My daughter's name is Felisia, spelled in the Faroese way. We don't have C in Faroese, so the name had to be spelled with an S instead. Now it is in the official name list.

I've seen this name spelled "Phylicia" before. Actually, I kinda like "Phylicia" better than "Felicia".

This is my middle name, and I just wonder WHY WHY did my parents choose this name? When someone asks me what my middle names are I'm ashamed to say it's Anna Felicia. Think twice before you give this name to your child.
