Love Felicity, was on our list for a girl (but we now know its going to be a boy). My only issue with it was that I wasn't too keen on some of the obvious shortenings/nicknames. Other names on our list were -

Pheobe, Elenor, Amelia, Martha, Penny and Forence.

Not sure if there is any common theme or not there to be honest!

I like it a lot but couldn't personally cope with the nn Flick which I think is inevitable!

Names I think have a similar feel..
Philipipa
Penelope
Josephine
Eleanor
Elizabeth

Such a pretty name. I know one who gets called Fliss. How about Annaliese, Genevieve, Francine (I'm told this is vile, but I like it!), Clarissa, Penelope?

I've nc'd for this smile its my name and I actually hate it....

Never could find anything with my name on as a child! Also people often go to spell it with a ph.

I don't really like any of the nn but over the years have been called most of them.Really don't do it ...

I like it but my DH didn't so it got crossed off.
You may like Felicia, Frances, Lydia, Harriet (Hattie), Juliet, Cassia, Verity, Louisa, Merryn, Elowen, Eleri, Rowan, Robyn, Vivienne/Vivian, Antonia, Margaret...

I have a Felicity, her nn is Lissie, never Flick.
Other names to consider, Matilda, Hattie, Hettie, Elodie.

Like it a lot!

StrangeGlue Wed 28-Aug-13 20:20:23

Lovely!

How about Claudia?

Will always think of the character in neighbours, like the name and think flick is a cute nn, cant imagine it being shortened to anything else really
What about freya?

Thanks for your replies! Some good suggestions and good to get the perspective of a real life Felicity too!

How about Felice?

Had Felicity on my list for DD, ended up with Verity.

I also like other 'virtue' names like Constance etc

Ace name.

Gorgeous.

Love it. Pretty sounding, nice meaning, not too ubiquitous but still a proper name that people have heard of. DH vetoed because we know one. She likes her name, and tbh nicknames can be whatever you like anyway.

Others on my list:
Flora
Eleanor
Imogen
Bethan
Iris
Helena
Carys
Arianwen

I don't like the sound at all. It sound awkward. Although the meaning is nice.

Pretty smile

cupcakeicing Sun 01-Sep-13 14:22:55

Really love your choice.

Felicia is nice - same sounds as Felicity (not Fer-lee-shaa as they say in America).

Wishfulmakeupping Sun 01-Sep-13 14:25:04

I really like and the nn too.
Other suggestions
Harriet
Abigail
Georgia
Camilla

WRT nicknames - I know two adult Felicitys, one known as Fizz and one always just Felicity as far as I know. Neither gets Flick, so it's not inevitable! Lissie's pretty remaincalm - though does it get confused for Lizzie?

Lovely !

FloraPost Mon 02-Sep-13 23:28:38

Vile - it's my name too. What Icouldntadviseitsir said.

Don't like it, very fussy-sounding. Also reminds me of a smug botoxed actress.
