Los Feliz is a hillside neighborhood in the greater Hollywood area of Los Angeles, California,[2][3] abutting Hollywood and encompassing part of the Santa Monica Mountains.

The neighborhood is named after its colonial Spanish-Mexican land grantee, José Vicente Feliz, and, along with present-day Griffith Park, makes up the original Rancho Los Feliz land concession.

While many who migrated to the area over the years pronounce the name of the neighborhood as /lɔːs flɪz/ (laws-FEEL-iz), in recent years, a number of residents have reverted to using the original pronunciation [los feˈlis] ("Los Feh-LEES"), Spanish for "the ones from the Feliz family", feliz meaning happy in English.[4][5]
