Felicity is as accessible a virtue name as Hope and Faith, but much more feminine -- and dare we say, happier. The hit TV show did a lot to soften and modernize the once buttoned-up image of Felicity, and it got further notice as the red-haired Colonial doll, Felicity Merriman, in the American Girl series.
Felicity is more popular than it's ever been, and has been climbing the charts for seven straight years. A current bearer is actress Felicity Huffman.
Two nicknames for Felicity: Flick and Fee. Other forms include Felicia and Felice.
