what do people think of the name Felix?

hellokitty124 Mon 29-Apr-13 13:34:55

Here in the UK it's a well know cat food brand. We've got a cat and so to me it is just that, catfood. smile

Yes, this comes to my mind:

But if that doesn't bother you or if you're outside the UK, then it shouldn't be a problem.

A cat blush sorry!

rachel234 Mon 29-Apr-13 13:58:58

I'm afraid the cat connotations - both Felix The Cat and the catfood - are quite strong here too.

Metellaestinhortobibit Mon 29-Apr-13 14:12:17

Love it!
Wanted it for my dd if she'd been a boy. But then I do like a classical name and it means happy, doesn't it?

Catlike Mon 29-Apr-13 15:17:17

I don't like it at all, sorry. It's partly the cat food connection but I just don't like the way it sounds.

Ham69 Mon 29-Apr-13 16:28:58

Love it.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Mon 29-Apr-13 16:35:40

Love it. smile

Felix is my cats name...its a popular brand of cat food too so not an ideal choice of name if you live in the UK...

It's on our short list! No cats here, so that probably helps.

Mousehere Mon 29-Apr-13 18:52:43

Sorry just think cat

BigBongTheory Mon 29-Apr-13 20:16:13

Love it. Classic and international. Quite popular now I think.

thermalsinapril Mon 29-Apr-13 20:47:28

Love it! It's a solid, classic Biblical name, and just a bit quirky too.

Branleuse Mon 29-Apr-13 20:52:47

love it. it's my best.

JazzAnnNonMouse Mon 29-Apr-13 21:01:14

It's become quite popular but I personally don't rate it. Cat connotations too much

Love it. Wanted it for this baby but she is a girl. I think it's fabulous, although possibly getting more popular. We have a DS already and he is George. I really like Felix!

Hate it for a childs name. Love it for a cats name

UnderwaterBasketWeaving Tue 30-Apr-13 06:34:04

People will be rude about it, but I think it'sthe best name ever!

gorionine Tue 30-Apr-13 06:36:53

A few years ago I would have said a cat too. I have since met a Felix in his 30', kind, generous personality (not in UK though) It is a very nice name that does mean 'happy'.

carameldecaflatte Tue 30-Apr-13 06:58:41

my 10 month old son is a Felix and obviously I love it!
It's a latin name meaning happy and lucky and we are happy to have him and he is lucky to be here as we almost lost him.
We had one idiot asking us if we'd named him after the cat food and we just said, "yes, of course we did, our cats love it (they don't) and we thought they'd love him too if we named him after their favorite food" that shut him up.
We had one or two raised eyebrows from family but they all love his name now! [g

I love it & always have.

I always wanted two boys-Felix & Oscar.

It didn't happen, but I still love both names.

squoosh Tue 30-Apr-13 13:54:52

Not a name I'm fond of, it's too cat like for a boy and too cat like and too childish for a man.

I always think it sounds like a hiss too if that makes any sense. Probably due to the cat links.

nannyof3 Tue 30-Apr-13 13:55:19

A cat

UnderwaterBasketWeaving Tue 30-Apr-13 18:18:07

Squoosh, I dont think it's at all childlike. I actually think it ages really well.

Maybe just me...
