"General Hospital" made this name popular in the 80s.

Yara Says:


I would go with Felicity rather than Felicia, since Felicia is an Internet meme now and likely will be for a while. I wouldn't want my kid to have to constantly put up with "Bye, Felicia!"

paulapuddephatt Says:


I first thought it was pronounced that way, similar to Felicity, and concluded that I had been wrong. I am in the UK, also. If that is a legitimate way to say the name, it makes me like it way more.

Looking at the comments I guess I'm weird. I've always read this as Fuh-LEASH-ee-a

Yessica Says:


Bye Felicia

SalserBL Says:


Bye Felicia!

snowsbeloved Says:


This name means "happy" not lucky...FYI. Just like Felicity and Felix.

snowsbeloved Says:


That's closer to the Spanish pronunciation: feh-LEE-see-ah

indiefendi2 Says:


That "Bye Felicia" running joke from Friday has ruined this name honestly.

cherrydubois Says:


In the UK this name is uncommon, and is pronounced as 'Fe-liss-ia'. It sounds much prettier with that pronunciation, in my opinion.

vintageluvs Says:


The only problem with this name is that everyone is going to read it like Alicia but with an F. I know a girl named Felicia, and she constantly has to correct people on the pronunciation.

AnonymousPerson Says:


I completely agree with you!

Myosotis Says:


I like it a lot better than Felicity (I know an annoying one), and I think it's so much more interesting, and not at all popular or boring where I live. But I only like it pronounced Fuh-liss-see-a, as I dislike the double ee in Fuh-lee-see-a, and hate the -sha sound in Fuh-lee-sha. Why do I have to be so picky? :(

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


Totally boring :(

Guest Says:


I would really love this name if it didn't have the sha sound at the end because it makes the whole name sound like "fish" to me :(.

steampunkleo Says:


Really loving this name right now! Also adore the nickname Fia!
