For the 'different, not weird' baby namer

Moniker Morsel: Felix

on November 30, 2013

Old-timer Felix is new and fresh again.  The letter X is in, and with his trendy 2-syllable rhythm, Felix is a winner.  Felix was a rare choice among new parents for a while, but with his sought-after uncommon but far from unheard of status, I’d say it’s with good reason that he’s officially back in style.


Felix is of Latin origin and means “happy” or “lucky.”

A Few Famous Felix’s:

Several saints and popes have been named Felix.  Felix Faure is a former president of France.  Felix Hernandez is a baseball player from Venezuela.  Felix Hoffmann was a German chemist.

Sibling Name Ideas:

Adele, Freya, Lydia, Mariska, Verity

Ethan, Forrest, George, Oliver, Timothy


Felix Raymond, Felix Paul

Warren Felix, Gabriel Felix

My thoughts: 

With his multicultural appeal, positive meaning, modern sound, and dense history, Felix is a great, balanced choice for a baby boy!
