Felix is a male given name that stems from Latin (fēlix, felicis) and means "happy".

Its female form is Felicity (English) - late 14c., "happiness; that which is a source of happiness," from Old French felicite "happiness" (14c.), from Latin felicitatem (nominative felicitas) "happiness, fertility," from felix (genitive felicis) "happy, fortunate, fruitful, fertile".[1]

In German, Dutch, Czech, Slovenian, Romanian and Scandinavian languages the form "Felix" is the same as English. In French, Hungarian, Portuguese and Spanish it is written with an acute, "Félix", whereas in Catalan it is written with a grave, "Fèlix". The Italian form of the name is "Felice", in Polish and Croatian "Feliks".
