Gender: F Meaning of Felicity: "good fortune, happy" Origin of Felicity: Latin Felicity's Popularity in 2014: #497

Felicity is as accessible a virtue name as Hope and Faith, but much more feminine -- and dare we say, happier. The hit TV show did a lot to soften and modernize the once buttoned-up image of Felicity, and it got further notice as the red-haired Colonial doll, Felicity Merriman, in the American Girl series.

Felicity reached its peak in popularity in 1999, a year after the TV show debuted, but still makes a felicitous choice. In fact, it's been climbing the charts again for five straight years. A current bearer is actress Felicity Huffman.

Two nicknames for Felicity: Flick and Fee. Other forms include Felicia and Felice.
