The name Felicity is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "good fortune, happy". Felicity is ranked #356 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Saints' Names for Girls and discussed in our forums with posts like "Baby a Day".
From the experts:
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.
