    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!

    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.

    Felix Sch... mightn't be the easiest name to say, but if you LOVE Felix, I wouldn't let that stop you from using it! It's a great name.

    I think it will be fine. I you love Felix, go for it. And Felix is a strong clear name that has to be spoken to its last syllable anyway, so folks aren't really likely to slur it together with your last name.

    It is a little tongue twister.. BUT in reality how often is the full name said? and is it bad enough to be a deal breaker? NO!!!
