St. Felicity - March 7
The 3rd-century saint was a Christian martyr, killed alongside Perpetua and other companions. The pregnant slave was being schooled in Christianity at a time when conversion to the faith was forbidden. Though not yet baptized, she was imprisoned for her faith, and finally executed at the military games in honor of Emperor Septimius Severus's birthday. Meaning "happiness," Felicity is a beautiful choice for any baby girl.
