I’ve been looking for names to add to my list and [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] is a new favorite of mine. The only issue I think I might have with it is that my preferred nickname is Flicka. I’ve seen it used before and according to BtN [name_f]Flick[/name_f] is the diminutive for [name_f]Felicity[/name_f], but I worry that people might think of the horse and movie.

Does Flicka make you think of the horse/movie?
What do you think of [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] nicknamed Flicka?

I think it depends if you’re talking [name_f]Flick[/name_f] or Flicka. Flicka does make me think of the horse/movie, and I would assume that the nickname came about because the girl was really into horses.

I wouldn’t make that association with [name_f]Flick[/name_f]. I think it’s a cute, tomboyish nickname for frilly [name_f]Felicity[/name_f].

Flicka, I definitely think of the horse.
[name_f]Flick[/name_f], I think of a smarmy little pickpocket or something from the 1800s. I definitely prefer [name_f]Flick[/name_f] to Flicka.

FYI, Flicka means ‘girl’ in Swedish.

I prefer [name_f]Flick[/name_f] personally :slight_smile: I know three Felicitys: two are [name_f]Flick[/name_f], one is Fliss. I love [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]!

Flicka is Swedish for “girl” and speaking as someone who lives less than fifteen minutes away from [name_u]Sweden[/name_u] and has a lot of Swedish acquaintances, I wouldn’t use - even as a nickname - it because it would be like calling someone “girl” which is just weird.

I guess [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] is off my list. I don’t like any of the other nickname possibilities.

What about [name_f]Lissa[/name_f] or Leecy? You have a lot of free rein with nicknames. I work with someone named Leecy (full name) and it is lovely on her. She is a middle-aged corporate professional and it works well on her!

[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] is on my long list, but I would probably call her [name_u]Fee[/name_u] if I ever used it.

I don’t like [name_f]Lissa[/name_f], Leecy or any of the other nicknames [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] has. This is the first name situation that I’ve ran into that I like the name, but I’m not fond of the nicknames. I’m a big fan of nicknames so I need a nickname that I like. I’m OK with giving [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] up. I have plenty of other names that I love on my list.

I like [name_f]Flick[/name_f], but Flicka just makes me think of the horse movie (and I’ve never even seen it!)

I think [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] is lovely and doesn’t necessarily need a nickname. But [name_f]Flick[/name_f] and even [name_m]Felix[/name_m] would be sweet as a nn.

Flicka is stupid. I like the name [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] but please don’t nickname your child Flicka.

Actually when I read the title of the thread I was going to suggest [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] nn Flicka and when I read it, that was already the description.
Neither name is my cup of tea but I actually quite like the connection between the 2 as to me it makes perfect sense.

I think Flicka works in an English speaking country but only as a nickname, so I say keep it and add it to the list
