Felicia

other word formation type Semantic change - broadening.; proper noun
Refers to a person who is unimportant, boring, or irritating (usually a combination of the three).
 
The term is almost exclusively used in the phrase "Bye Felicia", which originated in the 1995 movie "Friday". A character named Felicia is asking to borrow things from two men (a car, weed, etc.), and eventually, one of the men ends the conversation, saying simply, "Bye Felicia". In its modern context, "Felicia" now refers to anyone who plays the role that Felicia does in the original movie - someone with whom the other members of the conversation are tired of talking. Very occasionally a person will be referred to either as "Felicia" directly or "a Felicia" indirectly, which indicates that he/she is a person the speaker finds boring or insignificant. "Felicia" carries negative connotations, but is often used facetiously.
Etymology : Broadening of the name "Felicia", as referenced the 1995 movie "Friday".
