Russian nickname ?

Quick question for a novel I'm writing, set in early 20th century St Petersbug...

What is the Russian nickname/pet form of Felix?

Was tempted to shorten it as a westerner would (ie. Fee) but that didn't seem right, really want authenticity. My character is teasingly called Fifi (he's slighly effimate and the family have French connections) by some old/close friends, still that wouldn't be right in the context I intend. Am hoping for something very common/standard (on a par with Sasha for Alexander).

You have no idea how long this has been bugging me, have researched a fair few places but not found any answer. For some reason Felix is left off all the main lists of Russian nicknames, at least that I've come across.
