  1. Family name

  2. The first time I hear that name I just love it and my husband as well. And when we saw him, we knew it was the perfect name for our little precious.

  3. My husband wanted a jr so Felix it was. Love just having something to keep on going in the family ?

  4. Felix has been our top boy name pick for a while now. We had the idea of choosing names based on something related to classical music (my husband and I both play violin) while picking baby names during my first pregnancy. Our first baby was a girl so she got the middle name Claire for Debussy’s beautiful piano piece, “Clair de Lune” And our second child was a boy so for him we chose the name Felix (commonly used first name for the composer the composer Mendelssohn) Sebastian (Bach’s middle name).

  5. We went through thousands of names, and none seemed to fit. At every ultrasound, our little guy moved SO MUCH, and the technician started calling him a little acrobat. I looked up famous gymnasts, and when I read about the famous Ukrainian Israeli gymnast named Felix, I knew that was the perfect name for our little mover and groover! I also love that in Latin, Felix means happiness and good luck. 🙂
