How do you think sound together? Like both equally so also Felicity Constance?

HumphreyCobblers Mon 14-Nov-16 20:37:04

Lovely. I slightly prefer Constance Felicity.

KlingybunFistelvase Mon 14-Nov-16 20:47:46

I love Felicity Constance!

I'm not terribly keen on Constance as a first name personally and Constance Felicity sounds a bit like a description; Constant Felicity.

I like the names but it'd be a bit a burden being named 'constant happiness' / 'happiness constantly'. Too much to carry.

TBH two virtue names together is always going to be too much, it's not just these ones.

SaltyBitch Mon 14-Nov-16 20:55:49

Felicity is my name. It has been lovely to live with.

It depends on what you think of the common nicknames and which you prefer - Connie or Flick?

SaltyBitch Mon 14-Nov-16 21:00:22

Or Fliss, or Lissy. I've never been Flick.

Would she go by the name of Connie?
Constance Felicity is quite a mouthful but Connie is lovely.

BlackNo1 Mon 14-Nov-16 21:07:52

Felicity is lovely, I would use as a first name.
Love the shortened/nickname 'Fliss' too (and I'm not a fan of nicknames).

Constance is pretty but I would want to avoid being called Connie so for that reason, imho, it is better as a middle name

NavyandWhite Mon 14-Nov-16 21:07:53

Both ways really lovely.

If you like virtue names do you want to use two on one DD? What if you have another one, should you use one virtue and one non-virtue this time?

Thatwaslulu Mon 14-Nov-16 21:10:12

I'd never heard Fliss (my friend is a Flick) but it's really pretty!

OlennasWimple Mon 14-Nov-16 21:12:02

I like them both, but agree with pp that one would be better than both together

BadToTheBone Mon 14-Nov-16 21:13:09

Love them both.

livinglooney8 Mon 14-Nov-16 21:23:53

Felicity is just so positive! Love it!

Thanks for your comments, I have to confess I didn't realise Felicity is a virtue name, just always liked it.

Really lovely. Prefer Felicity as a name and Felicity Constance seems to sound slightly better.

groovygreenwichgirl Tue 15-Nov-16 11:27:39

I also think most people won't think of the virtues and if they do they are positive anyway.

littlepinkmouseofsugar Tue 15-Nov-16 13:52:09

Felicity is lovely. I'd have that as a first name - lots of fun with nicknames, whereas Constance is Connie or Con which are not so nice imo.

Nongoddess Tue 15-Nov-16 13:54:01

Ooh lovely! I'm a Felicity so I'm biased but I have always loved my name. Lots of positive comments too. Felicity Constance is beautiful I think...

heron98 Tue 15-Nov-16 14:07:00

It's quite a "horsey" name, if that makes sense.

blinkineckmum Tue 15-Nov-16 20:03:02

I've never liked the name Felicity as it's hard to say. So to me Constance Felicity sounds like Constantly Flickering.

SaltyBitch Tue 15-Nov-16 20:11:04

Is it hard to say?

blinkineckmum Tue 15-Nov-16 21:11:01

It has sibilants, plosives and lots of syllables, so for me it isn't a name which flows easily.
