So I was pretty set on the name Alice Eleanor, but with 3 weeks to go I've started to like the name Felicity.

DH isn't so keen.

What's everyones thoughts on this name? It's not in this years top 100 (that I can see) and I don't know if that's a good or bad thing.

I think it's really pretty and just that little bit more unusual.

I love it. DH vetoed it when we were discussing names but I still think it's so pretty and lovely.

It's lovely. I have known litte kids, bright young women, middle aged mothers and grandmothers with this name and it has suited them all.

Several of them have used Fliss as a nickname at some opint too which is also super cute

I really like it....never really thought about it until I saw yesterday that Paddy McGuiness and his wife have just had a baby girl and called her Felicity.

Don't like it when people shorten/nickname to 'Flick' though......hmm

I love it but the possibility of "Flick" would put me off using it.

FairyAccess Tue 13-Sep-16 09:45:02

It's lovely and not as popular as Alice etc

I love, love love it!

Beetlejuice1 Tue 13-Sep-16 09:45:08

Yep, love it smile
Alice is nice too though.

I prefer Alice Eleanor, Felicity is not as well used though.

I love Felicity! It was on our list.

Ladybird333 Tue 13-Sep-16 10:01:56

Love it!

ptsleslie Tue 13-Sep-16 10:02:26

I think it's a lovely name!

SpecialStains Tue 13-Sep-16 10:03:51

Lovely name, and I love the nickname Flick.

PotatoBread Tue 13-Sep-16 11:01:28

I quite like it though not keen on Flick as a nn

PotatoBread Tue 13-Sep-16 11:01:57

I prefer Alice though!

MitzyLeFrouf Tue 13-Sep-16 11:53:16

It's pretty and it reminds me of the TV show of the same name which I used to be obsessed with.

Branleuse Tue 13-Sep-16 11:55:23

i love it, and the nickname flick

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Tue 13-Sep-16 13:00:13

Very pretty. I like Fliss/y or Lissy as a nn, rather than Flick.
Alice is getting worn out, now

Bananacabana Tue 13-Sep-16 13:06:26

Both Alice and Felicity are lovely names smile

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Tue 13-Sep-16 13:09:54

I really like Felicity but I prefer Alice slightly.

MrsJoeyMaynard Tue 13-Sep-16 13:11:02

I like it.

WaitroseCoffeeCostaCup Tue 13-Sep-16 13:12:03

Beautiful! Felicity Alice is a fab name.

HairsprayBabe Tue 13-Sep-16 13:18:15

Beaut of a name, it's top of my list grin

TheFace Tue 13-Sep-16 14:06:58

wow. what a great response, unfortunately DH is a firm 100% no. He has no reason why he doesn't like it, he 'just doesn't'. Grrr, very annoying.

CancellyMcChequeface Tue 13-Sep-16 14:09:15

I love Felicity! Agree that Felicity Alice would be a great combination.
