Will we regret Felix?
I'm leaning toward Felix for baby #2, due in Feb. Our first is Jane Clayton nn Janie. I love Felix bc it means "happy" and bc it feels slightly to the left of Jane as an underused classic (and I like the idea of giving our son the more whimsical name and our daughter the more straightforward one.)
Our last name is 3 syllables, starting with Kin------, ending in -an. We have no set middle name yet.
Other first name contenders are:
Frederick or Alfred (nn Freddie)
Louis (nn Louie)
Adam (this is DH's favorite, not mine, but I'm interested in how it sounds to others)
One friend said that Fred sounds like a proctologist (!) Adam seems too caveman-like to me with sister Jane (me ADAM, you JANE.) So we're orbiting around Felix and Louis. I'm just afraid we're going to regret Felix when a crop of hipster Felixes comes out in about four years, but am I overthinking the trend thing? I love the creativity and discernment of all you Nameberries, so I figured you could help - we're open to any underused classic with a few exceptions:
Henry, William, Charles, Theodore (lovely but overused in our world)
Thomas and Wilson (family issue)
most names ending in k sound
names starting w J
nameberry-ish names trending heavily upward (see August/us, Max, Phineas, Oliver, Atticus, Rowan)
Fire away - and thank you!

I prefer Louis (Lou-ee), but Felix is also sweet. My only hesitation would be a concern that it may not fit your kid's personality. It works best on a happy, go-lucky type. What if your child is shy or has a less than annoyingly cheerful personality? Tough call. I really do love both your options, though. Also, Bastian (Sebastian), Cormac, Cabot, Ashford or Winslow.
