What do you all think of the name Felicity for DD2? Dd1 is Alyssa.
KSxx · 23/11/2019 01:00
beautiful name x
CatherineOfAragonsPrayerBook · 23/11/2019 01:09
Not sure it takes well to shortening though? I suppose Fefe or similar.
Makesmilingyourbesthobby · 23/11/2019 01:12
I like it it’s cute but I agree with pp when it comes to shortening it or nickname
MrsNoMopp · 23/11/2019 01:30
I think it's too similar. Ff-Alyssa-Tee.
DramaAlpaca · 23/11/2019 01:33
Lovely name, but it's too similar in sound to Alyssa. I'd constantly be calling them Felyssa and Alycity
Astronica · 23/11/2019 01:56
Lovely name but they would be too similar for me.
dreichwinter · 23/11/2019 02:05
Nice name, often shortened to flic.
NewtonPulsifer · 23/11/2019 02:06
I know a Felicity, it is a lovely name and she is a lovely girl. She gets called “Fliss” for short.
Nonameyet1 · 23/11/2019 07:19
It is a lovely name.
Reading the above posts it does sound quite similar to Alyssa.
Leopardprintboots · 23/11/2019 08:43
Great name love it and I don’t find it too similar to sibling name
Felicity in neighbours got called Flick which was cool and she was stunning !
BuffaloCauliflower · 23/11/2019 08:47
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
blondie87 · 23/11/2019 08:49
Love it- was my girl’s choice but I’m having a boy!
daisypond · 23/11/2019 09:05
I like it but it’s too similar in sound to Alyssa, while being very different in style.
Bluerussian · 23/11/2019 09:06
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.
MrsBertBibby · 23/11/2019 09:07
Way too close to Alyssa.
bridgetreilly · 23/11/2019 10:07
Love it. I don't think it's close to Alyssa at all. Good choice, OP!
dancingunicorns123 · 24/11/2019 01:35
My friend named her daughter Felicity and calls her Fliss x
EleanorShellstrop100 · 24/11/2019 04:40
I really don’t like Felicity. And Alyssa and Felicity are too similar (although I like Alyssa!)
PlantPotting · 24/11/2019 11:37
Love it and not too similar
BlueChampagne · 26/11/2019 13:18
I like it but agree with others that it's too close to Alyssa. How about Fiona?
Sparklypurpleunicornsaremyfav · 28/11/2019 13:22
I absolutely love the name but I agree it sounds too similar to alyssa
MadameJosephine · 28/11/2019 13:31
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.
MadameJosephine · 28/11/2019 13:33
If you did decide it was too similar how about Verity instead?
Proseccoinamug · 28/11/2019 15:20
I think it beautiful and my dd longs to be called Felicity!
CatteStreet · 28/11/2019 19:08
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.'
