Meaning

An old Roman nickname, Felix means 'lucky' in Latin! One lucky thing about the name is that it's recognized almost everywhere in the world (the exceptions are Italy, where the name is Felice and Poland with Feliks). This name has that rare end letter 'x', like a kiss, which gives it its own lucky charm. And we have one very special namesake. It's the uplifting 19th century German composer, Felix Mendelssohn, known for his sparkling, bright and upbeat classical pieces.
