    I dont know that it will ever truly make the transition to unisex land. Definitely not too popular in the foreseeable future either.
    I can envision a little girl and even a teen with the name Felix, but I don't know that it would work on a grown woman as much....
    I also think Cordelia is a bit too frilly to pair with it.
    Felix Cora on the other hand....

It's also very different in style to Rowan. I think Sawyer is a better "fit" with Rowan. Alternatives: Phoenix, Calix or Lennox.
    This.

    There were only 15 female Felix's born in 2012. It's definitely NOT being anything close to a unisex name. It is a boys name.

    I agree that if it must be used on a girl, Felix would be best as a nickname for Felicity. By the way, Felix would be an awesome name as a brother to Silas.

    I strongly dislike Felicity so that is definitely not an option. I am also considering Silas for a girl or boy, as with most of the names on my list.

    I don't think people understand that I'm not doing it to be trendy or to push buttons, I just like certain names and I generally like them for both genders. I like a name for it's sound and vibe, the "genders" of names do not concern me.

    Have you considered Filix? It's (part of) the Latin name for ferns. You'd get the nature connection to Rowan as well. Ooh, or Salix, Latin for willow!
