We analyze the stellar properties of the relativistic mean-field (RMF) parametrizations shown to be consistent with the recently studied constraints related to nuclear matter, pure neutron matter, symmetry energy, and its derivatives {[}Phys. Rev. C 90, 055203 (2014)]. Our results show that only two RMF parametrizations do not allow the emergence of the direct Urca process, important aspect regarding the evolution of a neutron star. Moreover, among all approved RMF models, fourteen of them produce neutron stars with maximum masses inside the range 1.93 <= M/M-circle dot <= 2.05, with M-circle dot being the solar mass. Only three models yield maximum masses above this range and a discussion on the inclusion of hyperons is presented. Finally, we verified that the models satisfying the neutron star maximum mass constraint do not observe the squared sound velocity bound; namely, v(s)(2) < 1/3, corroborating recent findings. However, the recently proposed sigma-cut scheme can make the RMF models consistent with both constraints, depending on the isoscalar-vector interaction of each parametrization. (AU)
