Since I read that all names with good meaning are fine, Could you please tell me If its Ok to name my baby boy "Felix" as we live in Germany. Thank you

Answer

This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

Felix is a name that comes from a Latin origin and it means "lucky", "successful", "happy". Since the name has a good meaning, it is acceptable as a name for a Muslim baby. Therefore feel free to use this name. If someone says you shouldn't have used this name, just tell them that Turkish Muslims use Turkish words as names, Kurdish Muslims use Kurdish words, Persian Muslims use Persian words, for this reason it is perfectly acceptable to use names of Western origin as well.
