What do you think of

Felix?

DH does not like it. He says: "Felix the cat".
I think Felix the cat is way pass this generation and even the one before it.

The cat does come to mind too... but what comes to mind first is Felix King from the Road to Avonlea series a number of years ago Smile

Otherwise... I don't feel much either way for it. What about as a middle name?

We need a boy name that is relatively short (3 syllables or less), with the same spelling and relatively same pronunciation in English and French.

If we have a girl, it will be named Juliet.

I too think Felix the Cat. I don't think I would like the name regardless of that association though.

I don't know if Felix flows well with DS#1's name. He has a very classic/traditional name with Joseph and I think Felix would stand out..

What about:
-Austin
-Jameson ( a little long)
-Xander
-Jack
-Daniel
-Matthew
-Tanner

I love Felix! A lovely traditional name. If I had boy-girl twins (and an English-speaking husband) I would name them Felix and Fiona.

Other famous Felixes include a character from Veronica Mars (a biker with a heart of gold!) and a mischevious little boy on Road to Avonlea.

If you don't go with it, there are other classic French-English alternatives like:
Adrien
Julien
Martin
Luc
Eric
Sebastien
Tristan

I like Felix. It's very nice in French and English and it goes well with Joseph too. Felix the cat is wayyy over!! I agree with you on that!
