Name dilemma... in need of some advice!
Okay so I am in LOVE with the name Felix and it has become one of my favorite names of all time. However our last name is German and starts with Sch. I'm afraid that Felix will clash with it and be too hard to say fn and ln together. What do you guys think and would you use it anyway?
Thanks berries!Married for almost 2 wonderful years and dreaming about starting a family in the near future!

Sage ~ Penelope ~ Vittoria ~ Lucilla ~ Liv ~ Hermione ~ Wilhelmina~ Rowena

Mischa I'm going to assume your last name is Schwartz (for simplicity sake).
In German Felix Schwartz sounds absolutely fine and without any odd complications. I can see how in English it's a bit more trouble-some but I think that the -x and Sch- sounds are distinctive enough that (at least in my accent) it's hard to make them blend in unfortunate ways.
I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Felix and wish it weren't becoming so popular in the US. It's almost breaking my heart. It's the only name that's really stuck with me since I was 8.MAJOR CONSTRUCTION ZONE
