The Fel (pronounced “Fell”) is a nickname for the combined area of East Feliciana and West Feliciana parishes in Louisiana, commonly referred to as “the Felicianas”. The Fel derives from West Feliciana High School’s popular slang nickname “West Fel High”. The Fel is considered part of the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Area and is home to approximately 40,000 residents. While all other neighboring parishes of the capitol city have surged with population booms, East and West Feliciana have remained quiet rural areas. Many Baton Rouge residents own hunting camps or summer get away homes in The Fel’s rolling hills. The Fel has avoided criticism from Baton Rouge city dwellers over the years. While most outlying parishes are considered to be backwards and redneck, the Felicianas have maintained a southern elegance and sophisticated reputation with the people of the metropolis.

General Public - Damn, check the Armani suit.
