Felix is a horrible name. I think that annyone would be very cruel to name their child such a geeky name. If your name is Felix......I am soooo sorry.

12/06/2023 02:19:22

love it! am naming my baby that when he arrives in April

11/28/2023 22:41:30

This is pretty much the worst name ever. Better to drink while You're pregnant than name your kid "Jayden." But if You're considering this name you probably already drink while pregnant.

10/06/2023 15:23:36

I'm acquaintances with someone called Felix. He tends to be really Annoying and should be called ADAM. Holly and Philip would not be happy!

10/06/2023 08:38:02

My brother was named Felix and he is a pain in the face.

09/08/2023 02:55:34

i plan on naming my son felix. It's the only male name that i truly like.

09/01/2023 10:45:24

If I ever have a son I would like his name to be Felix. It has a nice meaning and a good ring to it.

08/29/2023 10:09:58

My son was born in January. I have a very common last name, so I wanted his first name to be memorable without being weird. I named him "Felix Emory" which means "happy/prosperous" and "industrious." He is already proving his first name; everyone comments on what an amazingly happy and sweet boy he is. I am so happy I named him this! The only thing I wish is that there were an easy nickname for it.

08/09/2023 17:35:34

I am 7 monghs pregnant with my 2nd son. We are so excited to name him Felix. We wanted to name our first son Felix, but our parents didn't like it and we gave in to their opinions. We named our 1st born Henry which is a wonderful name , but SOOO popular right now.

08/06/2023 23:10:26

Felix is the king of babies. There is no Buddha gooder.

08/05/2023 00:09:06

We just named our baby boy Jayce. We love the name.

07/14/2023 15:54:12

We are Everton Football club supporters, Landon very briefly played for our team, he is American and played for USA in the 2020 world cup also. We like him as a footy player and as soon as we found out we were having another boy at 20 weeks, my partner mentioned the name Landon before we even left the hospital! I wasn't sure at first, but its kinda growing on me and my other'son Kyle LI'm, who is 15 loves it! Some people stick their noses up when we tell them our chosen name, other people love it! I really am looking forward to meeting our little Landon around the December 4th 2020, not sure of a middle name yet though, any suggestions!❤️

07/13/2023 18:26:58

I love this name too and my husband also worries that people will link the name with "the Cat". If You'really want this name for your daugther, you may consider "Felice", It's another form of Felix.

07/13/2023 12:51:56

Were considering naming our little boy Uriah! We think its a really neat and strong name with a great meaning. I don't get why everyone hates it and says It'sounds like urine.

06/20/2023 22:03:10

People often refer to me as "Felix the Cat." I personally don't like my name too much.

06/15/2023 16:33:44

My name is Felix. In my youth, I was teased with "Felix the Cat". After the hundredth time though, you just laugh it off and say "yeah" with a smile. Most native english speakers I have encountered had no problem spelling it (only 2-3 people acted like they had never heard of it before, I think some teenager at a Rubio's Baja grill, and one at a hardware store) or pronouncing it. Asians (who didn't grow up here in the US) seem to have more trouble saying it and pronouncing it. They usually pronounce it "fix", "flicks", "Fay-lecks" or "falicks" and spell it all sorts of ways including "Phix", "Phex", "filex", "philex". I have only briefly met one other Felix in my life, Felix Fan (of the Cello fame), who used to live down the'street, however, I don't think they liked us for some reason. I like the name, it is uncommon and people seem to have an easier time recalling your name in most cases.

06/05/2023 09:59:22

We just named our little boy born two days ago, and like alot of the people here say It's got some different opinions when you first say it but then people tend to come back with how much they really like it.We love it and know he'll grow into it.

06/02/2023 11:45:00

Our second son was born 7/23/10 and we named him Felix, and I think It's a sexy name! Our families/ friends haven't all been'totally supportive of it, but that just tells me we are onto something good! Hooray for all the FELIX'S OUT THERE, MALE AND FEMALE!

06/02/2023 00:34:56

I really really want to call my baby boy felix but my partner isnt keen on it he refers to it as the cat but i hope i can convince him cos its such a cool name and it will be such a cool guy!!i hope he changes his mind..and the name just makes me feel really happy and then i found out it means happiness every other name'seems boring!!

05/25/2023 14:46:46

Its very unique, completely phoen'tic, and easy to remember. People think its awesome that I'm named Felix, and they always remember who I am... but the downside is I never remember they're name, so i look bad...

05/18/2023 13:29:58

We've named our first born Caden David (born 14/5/2021) as I'm Welsh and live in Wales and my partner and I knew straight away this was the perfect name for our little bundle of joy. he's strong, resiliant and certainly a little warrior (amongst other things!!):-)

My grandson's name is Felix. He gets teased all the time, Felix the Cat. He hates his name. I feel so sorry for him. His father loved the name, but I'm sure he would never of named him Felix if he had known the torment his son goes through.

03/13/2023 09:19:26

I don't really like the name. In school they someties call me Felix the cat and stuff like that and that's really anoying. P.S.:I hate the producers of "Felix the cat". :-P

03/04/2023 12:50:32

To be honest, i've aaywls had an inter'st in names.I was one of those girls who was 10 planning their family! Also, I have aaywls made stories, so I con'tantly needed names.Even when I don't write the'stories, I generally aaywls have a story in my head need names lol. Also, names are apart of my core inter'sts or are interlinked with them.History,culture, literature,words,children family are all parts of names or names are crucial parts in'them.So, my inter'sts are interlinkedI first joined YA for school purposes, as I often answers that I needed on here couldn't comment as I wasn't a member. I then ambled my way through the different sections, when I settled on baby names, as it is was one of the few things a person can do that was pure' if that makes sense.It's innocent fun.You can't cause harm you learn a lot. Also, I enjoy learning about names the cultures.Overall, I like helping people trying to help them find their perfect fit Was this answer helpful❤️

02/21/2023 03:31:32

I am happy with this name because "nomen est omen" seems to really be true here. felix means "the happy one" and in fact I AM a happy guy. a great name which seems to brings a lot of luck with it!

02/14/2023 15:45:52

We just named our son Gaige and we love it! After going through thousands of names Gaige is the first one that I said I like it a lot! the first time I heard it. It is a good strong name I think and very unique. Somewhere I look up the meaning online and It'said it meant "pledge" or "oath"

01/16/2023 09:04:34

12/02/2022 18:08:42

Boys' names ending in "X" have a sense of power and a regal quality (Rex means "king"). And Felix is very colorful. I like Felix.

We, too, have a LI'm. My dad's WillI'm and I have a nephew, Will, so LI'm is in keeping. His full name is LI'm Tavish (which is Irish for twin), and his twin's name is Aidan Thomas (Thomas also means twin and was the paternal grandfather's name, too). We have had a few problems with pronunciation- Leem the most common, but still love the name, even'though increasing in popularity.

10/17/2022 23:00:02

We just named our son Felix! Some people, usually the 'older generation' do not care for it. But we love it!

10/17/2022 12:42:52

I actually had my name changed to this, so its rather obvious that I find this name to be excellent in appearance and meaning.

09/29/2022 10:20:48

i've hated my name ever'since i was in primary school. Mainly cause of the Felix cat adver's! Everyone called me Kitty and patted me on the head, so all through high school and college i used my last name. Now in Uni, im finally accepting that this is who i am.. and i love it!

09/24/2022 03:40:50

I have never heard of this name before, though I have really met a lot of people while I worked in NYC. Now, I am looking for an unusual name to give my son who will be born in just a few days. And the name FELIX is just beautiful. I think my wife and I have found a name that fits.

09/20/2022 01:31:18

Im 16 and I have wanted to name my son Felix for as long as I can remember. I love that name and think as a kid it would be adorable and as a teen cool. My parents don't agree and think its a stupid name. Personally I think it different and cute. Most teens dont really assocaite it with the cat, I sure didnt, and older people get over it. We cant all have kids named Lloyd and Vernell!

09/18/2022 22:11:24

Felix is a sexy and phenomenal name! I wish I had thought of it. It is a very strong name and one that Isn't typical. I love it.

Hi, My name is Felix and I am from India - where it is pretty unique - so I love it. I too have my share of 'Felix the cat❤️' - and I too, like another Felix here just smile. Similarly, people spell and pronounce my name differently - so that is not a first again! I am however'surprised to see that girls are also named Felix - wow it would be great to meet a girl named Felix (though I have never even met another guy Felix yet)! God bless all the Felix' I love my name and am glad that'so many people do too!

05/01/2022 15:40:48

I know someone who just named their baby Felix, and wonder why since It's such an unusual name.

04/21/2022 18:41:42

I think the world is brainwashed by the media and for people to make refernce to a cartoon is just un-educated. This is a strong historic name that has been around way before "that cat".

03/15/2022 15:29:06

yes infact brayan is spelled exactly the'same i like my name no matter how many times people say it wrong!!!

03/05/2022 05:41:24

02/21/2022 11:52:12
