what do people think of the name Felix?

I love it, but dh is very against it due to it being a 'cat name'. He also has a long list of 'dog names' which I am not allowed to use! I would def go for it given the chance though (I do love cats though so personally don't see that connection as a negative).

My DS is Felix.
I was fully aware of the cat food, also the harbour, the Popes, James Bond's best friend, a few actors etc.

Most of all though, I loved the meaning, and the fact it couldn't be shortened easily.

I too think Cat Food, sorry. Or the cartoon Felix the Cat! But perhaps you're not in the UK?

It is ds' middle name (sp feliks as it is after polish grandpa) so obv we love it smile and the meaning is lovely.

I LOVE it. Very quirky and cool.

But then we don't have cats so I don't associate it with the cat food. I do associate it with Felix the Cat - but in a good way - he is such a cool character and one of the first cartoons.

It also works in lots of languages.

And Felix Baumgartner is pretty cool and not at all cat-like (except maybe in having more than one life...)

I'm not that keen on the licks sound at the end. We also don't own a cat so no cat food associations here.

Great name. Ignore cat comments.

I know a Felix. The parents wanted a names that can be used in the UK and Austria.

Why ignore the cat comments, LadyMetro? The OP is asking for peoples' opinions and a lot of people do associate Felix with the cat food brand.

I like it. I think it's a cool name. I wouldn't worry about the cat thing.

Love it

I like it. DS has two 'x' names and if DD1 or DD2 had been a boy Felix would have been one of the middle names used.

I actually like the cat food association. It means it will never get as popular as, say, Max, which you can't move in a London playground without hearing.

I really like it but my surname starts with F so it's a no-go. It means lucky in Latin, which I think is sweet.

Sod the cat!
