Names that mean 'lucky'
I try not to get TOO sucked into meanings (over sounds, general perception, etc) but I do love a cool meaning.
I was/am very fond of Zelda, which means 'lucky' in Yiddish, but my DH has banned it - despite it being a family name for me - because of the Nintendo game. Really very irritating for me. But I've mostly set it aside, hence the past tense.
Felicia he's okay with. Aside from Felicity (not ideal with our surname) what other 'lucky' names am I blanking on?
And is Felicia too dated to even consider? Felix is stylish for boys - Felicity holds its own - but what of feminine ones that don't end in -y? Felicia, Felixia, Feliana, Felicita? Our last name ends in -y, so Felicity 3-syllables-y is not ideal at all.
What about some of these, they don't quite have the meaning lucky.
Valentina (good health)
I like Beatrice/Beatrix a lot, I'll have to bring that up gently though as he's vetoed it before... sometimes he forgets and goes "oh I like that" but sometimes its "AGAIN?" lol
Gwen is taken in our circle and can't be doubled.
Valentina is interesting... but I love too many V names as it is. :)
Is this your very gentle way of saying you hate Felicia? ;)
How about Fortuna or Fortula? I like Felicia but prefer Felice.
I don't mind Felicia (my friend's name) but I've always preferred Felicity. I do understand you not wanting to use it with your surname.
