F is for FELIX and FORTUNA

F (2)

I have a work in progress which I have tentatively titled , Years of Futility; Defining My Youth The main characters are Fortuna the unlucky and Felix the unhappy. This is one of those cases where I took names with obvious meanings and in adding to the story line play with the irony of their names.

Felix of course means “lucky”, “favored by luck” or “the lucky one” and Fortuna “Good Fortune”. In my WIP  Felix is far more than unhappy he is dangerous and Fortuna born on a Friday the 13th struggles with creating her own luck.

Have you ever met anyone with the names FELIX or FORTUNA? I have and frankly their names suited them, have you ever met people with names that just did not fit them?
