Felix is my name and I love it, I am just short of words to describe how good the name is, because many have written down all that I wanted to pour out. Even though am not yet successful as the name implies, I am confidently sure that I will.

Felix is a lovely name, energetic and upbeat, and it has a nice meaning.

Felix can be used for girls, but personally I like Felix more for a boy because it’s traditionally masculine without sounding too feminine past early childhood like actual unisex names such as Madison or Lindsey. For a girl, I prefer Felicia or the ACTUAL feminine form Felixa as a standard girl's name.

I think this name sounds good, and comes across as cool. Unfortunately, it has been ruined by a stupid cat, and an even worse Youtuber. That's really too bad because the name Felix deserved better than that.

Wow.. I'm baffled at all these negative comments. It's a lovely name and has been used much more than just Pewdiepie's name and Felix the Cat! I can bring in an example myself although it may or may not be liked, it depends on the person.

I love the name, and I know that some people are like, "It's just a cat and PewDiePie" but I mean seriously, don't let that ruin the name for you! Also, I was writing a story and Felix gets to marry the princess in the story. I think that "lucky" is a perfect meaning because the Felix in the story is definitely lucky!

Despite all of the negative comments regarding the name, I still think that this is a great name. I like names that contain an “x”, and this name makes me think of a young, energetic, and sports-loving teenager, plus, it means "happy". When I chose my English name, Felix was one of the candidates, but chose Frederic instead. It was also the name of a category 5 hurricane that devastated Central America in 2007.

My name is Felix and I love it cause it's so unique. I bet no other person in my city has this name except me. And I do get teased for the "Felix the cat" reference but it's okay, at least my name is represented in something famous and popular, so I don't mind.

I am a female to male transgender individual and even before my transition I'd loved the names Leo and Felix my whole life. When I asked several close friends which name suited me most, all of them said Felix was perfect. I couldn't agree more and I get countless compliments for my name, Felix Emil H. Luckily my generation isn't familiar with Felix the Cat, and those who are only bring it up lightheartedly.

Felix is just an all-around great, masculine, classy, unique, pleasant-sounding name. I have nothing but positive associations (Unger, the Cat, Fix-It, Felix felicis...), yet have never met or heard of a real person with the name.

Ignorance at it's most finest. Felix is a bad name to start with, but it is not unisex. You just gave your daughter a male name!
― Anonymous User  10/11/2014
How do you think names become unisex? There's nothing ignorant about choosing to give your child a name traditionally meant for the opposite gender; it's a choice. Saying "most finest" and "it's" instead of "its" on the other hand...

I really don't like this name. And I must address a comment that really bothers me.
Anonymous user on 6/13/2015: I take it that you've never heard of a typo or of autocorrect. I also take it that the reasons for your upvotes was due to other people agreeing that they also like the name and anyone saying otherwise, automatically gets voted down because I guess this name is so cherished. That is something I'll never understand. Also, giving a daughter a name that is clearly a boy's name is very ignorant. It's an ignorant, brainless and obnoxious trend in my country. Clearly that is the U.S. Yes it's a choice, but that choice is an ignorant one.
Felix is best on a boy but no matter the gender, Felix, in my opinion is a bad name. I'm just thankful that this name is exceedingly rare where I'm from and the only Felix you're bound to meet are cats (:

I named my daughter Felix June-Olivea. I get complements on how cute her name is everyday. Modern yet old fashioned. It fits her so well. We call her Fí for short. I love her name, best choice I made. My mom hated it, but now she loves telling everyone her granddaughter's name means happy beautiful beginning.
szrhapi76  10/9/2014
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.

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.")

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.
Isabel Price  8/12/2013
Felix seems like a cool name. It's not common in my country either.

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 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.

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 :)

It's a shame that it has such religious connotations. Otherwise, it's a great sounding name.

Kaat5  8/23/2008
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.
aquamarina  8/19/2008
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.

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
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.

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.

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.
