    I do like Felicity. It is kind of hard to imagine it on a 50-year-old woman. However, I think it's a good modern choice - it's not too popular.

    It's my absolute favorite name ever! I like how it was common in colonial times but is a sweet spot name now, being in the 600's popularity wise is perfect to me. It sounds like a classy but happy girl to me. It sounds prim and proper but not in a snooty way, the 'happiness' meaning can't be beat. It's melodic and rolls off the tongue which means being 4 syllables doesn't make it tiresome. I also like how many nicknames it has (Lissie and Lity are my favorites). This is just a personal thing but I like how it has the word 'city' in it too because being a big city girl is a huge part of who I am. I can picture it on all ages and in fact have heard lots of people say "that's an old lady name."

    I really like Felicity! I agree that it's very English-sounding, but it also make me think of the American Girl doll, paradoxically. It's one of those names where I like the nicknames even better than the actual name-- Fee, Flick, and Cricket are all adorable options.

    I really like it. I like the happiness/luck meaning, and I like the multi-syllable virtue names a lot (Verity, Felicity, Amity...) and Felicity is familiar without being common.

    I wish it flowed better with my last name, which is 3 syllables and ends in y and thus kinda kills it, and while I don't hate Felicia, it's is a more dated sound to me.

    I play with the idea of pairing the "lucky" meaning with "star" with a name like Esther. Or maybe Clover. A little bit cute but not the kind that would make it embarrassing as she's grown, because Felicity Esther sounds perfectly reasonable for any career.
