Feel like you won the jackpot with baby? Felix, meaning "happy, fortunate,” could be the perfect name choice (and also great karma for a baby). Four popes, dozens of saints and parents everywhere have embraced this Latin name, pronounced FEEL-iks. In the New Testament, Felix was a Roman governor of Judea who, ironically, was not known for having a happy disposition; clearly, his name’s meaning at least underwent a redemption over the years. Hollywood stars feeling fortunate who named their sons Felix include Elizabeth Banks of “The Hunger Games” and Gillian Anderson of “The X Files.”
