What do you all think of the name Felicity for DD2? Dd1 is Alyssa.

Gorgeous name!

Not sure it takes well to shortening though? I suppose Fefe or similar.

I like it it’s cute but I agree with pp when it comes to shortening it or nickname

Lovely name, but it's too similar in sound to Alyssa. I'd constantly be calling them Felyssa and Alycity Confused

I know a Felicity, it is a lovely name and she is a lovely girl. She gets called “Fliss” for short.

It is a lovely name.

Reading the above posts it does sound quite similar to Alyssa.

It’s a lovely name but I don’t like any of the shortenings so it went off our list. However I think it’s both too similar in sound, and not enough alike in style to go with Alyssa

I like it but it’s too similar in sound to Alyssa, while being very different in style.

Felicity is a beautiful name. I had a good friend called Felicity when I was a teenager (Quaker), she was known as 'Phil', I've also heard nicknames of Flick and Fliss.

Love it. I don't think it's close to Alyssa at all. Good choice, OP!

I really don’t like Felicity. And Alyssa and Felicity are too similar (although I like Alyssa!)

I like it but agree with others that it's too close to Alyssa. How about Fiona?

It’s beautiful, I love it but it was vetoed for DD by her dad and I keep trying to persuade friends to use it for their babies.

As a full name I don’t think it sounds too similar to Alyssa but I love the shortening Lissy and that probably would be too close to Alyssa so I’d probably go for Fliss or Flick as a nn.

If you did decide it was too similar how about Verity instead?

Lovely name, was a strong contender for our dd. But in your case I agree with this: 'However I think it’s both too similar in sound, and not enough alike in style to go with Alyssa.'
