This name is innocent, but so overused in the country where I live. I know 20 girls named Felicia, but one of them spells it "Felitzia".

I love it! I say "fuh-lee-shuh".

Felicia Mitsuki is a character from a JRPG called Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story.
Best pronounced "Feh-Lee-cee-ah" in my opinion. :)
My name is Felicia and I'm 25. I haven't really had any issue with it. Even with Bye Felicia, the most people who gave me issues with it are people who would've made fun of me for other things too - like my height. Mostly, I get compliments on it. If you are debating this name, don't be deterred - besides, the meme will probably not be as relevant when the child gets older.
Also Corsican. You'll find numerous bearers on social media.
The name remind me of cats (Felis). It’s cute.
The name is white...very white. Just because it is used by black people, it doesn't make it "ghetto".

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...

I like this name. I don't think of "Bye Felicia," I think of Felicia from Fire Emblem. I like how it sounds, too.
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.
I just think of Bye Felicia now.
The Marvel character Black Cat’s secret identity is Felicia Hardy.
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.

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.
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.
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.
