This name is also used in Greece, I don't know why it's not listed, since there's mention of the Greek name-day on the 14th of February.
IOANNA  8/7/2006
It is the middle name of my daughter. Her first name is from her grandmother (which is typical in Greece) and I named her also Valentina because she was born on Valentine's day. I couldn't resist this.
IOANNA  8/7/2006
There is a very old, classic Greek song entitled "Valentina". It is about a girl who has a bohemian life style, she does things unsuitable for a girl of her age, like having short hair, smoking, driving a car, hanging around night-clubs, and as the song predicts she will be soon wearing trousers! LOL! That's what the old times were like!

Valentina is also used in Spain and Spanish-speaking countries. There is a famous, classic, Spanish film called Valentina and a series of films involving the same character. A beautiful name! Great for a girl born on Valentine's Day!

A woman I know who is named Valentina is the worst and the meanest person I have ever met in my life. That is why I hate this name. Maybe once it was only because of her, but now I hate the name for itself alone.

This name is so beautiful. How the person up there could dislike it is beyond me.

Commenting on my own name because I love it! 90% of people I speak with every day comment [positive] on the name. As a part of my job, every day, I speak with at least 70 people from all over the world for the first time. I have been told only once in person that being from Bosnia my name should not be as plain as Valentina. I started laughing, asked her if she was serious and she was, too.

Valentina is a Mexican hot sauce manufactured by Salsa Tamazula of Guadalajara. It is common in Mexico, and is commonly used in the United States' Hispanic culture.

Although Valentina comes in two varieties—hot and extra hot—the sauce is known mostly for its taste as opposed to its spice. The taste can be described as a citrus flavor with a spicy aftertaste. It is often used on cucumbers and many varieties of fruit, such as watermelon, oranges, and pineapple, with lemon and salt added. Most enthusiasts refer to it as an authentic hot sauce, although in most Mexican homemade salsas, vinegar is seldom used, if ever. Among hot sauce enthusiasts it is very well rated, usually scoring 4 or more stars. It serves mostly as a dipping sauce or a hint of spiciness to most foods since its citrus-like taste rarely overpowers the taste of the food on which it is being applied.

I love this name! If I was Italian I wouldn't have to think about naming a kid this, but since I'm not =( It might be a little too different.

I love this name. It's so powerful and sexy sounding. I imagine a dark skinned girl with Russian heritage with thick black hair and bright eyes. It sounds like the name of a very confident person. I prefer the nickname Vala, which I think is cute and pretty.

Feminine and soft, but very strong and classic!

I absolutely adore this name. In fact, I'm legally changing my name to Valentina soon. My birthday happens to be 13 February, but I don't think my birthday being a day off of Valentine's Day and my name being Valentina will be that weird.

I've heard negative comments from the cliché "I hate Valentine's Day" people, and I've heard it's silly, but hey, it's my name!

I wish my first name was Valentina but my middle name is because I was born on february 14, Valentine's day. I love it but to you people who want it to be your first name, I'm just saying people will remind you of bad stuff like the Valentine's day massacre and how St. Valentine was excuted on that day. But overall I love the name.

I know a girl named Valentina. She's just called Tina, and for a while I thought that was her actual name. She's a nice girl, but I don't really like this name. Maybe it's because of Valentine's Day, and I think holiday names are kind of tacky.
Kathy D.  6/1/2015
My name is Valentina so I'm okay with this name but hate the fact that sometimes people can't pronounce it right or stuff like that. If the workplace uses the first letter of the first name then I'm nearly always last but lucky for me at school they use the first letter of the last/middle name. Valentina is a Latin name, all the people I have met with this name are from Latin America.

Valentina is a gorgeous name. Unique but easy to understand, with a melodious and romantic sound, strong and sweet at the same time. It fits so well into so many personalities. I can imagine a strong and warlike Valentina, but I can also imagine a dreamy and romantic Valentina. And "V" being one of my favorite initials, that name gets more points for me. In my opinion, Valentina is one of the most beautiful names that exists.

This is a lovely female name. The male variant Valentine is the better name, in my opinion, but Valentina has a nice flow.

The holiday is named after Saint Valentine, not the other way around. Besides, Valentina is such a common name that I wouldn't think of it as a "holiday name". But if someone wanted to name their baby after the holiday, I wouldn't say it's "tacky". It's a perfectly fine name. Also, even if it's more Southern/Eastern European, I don't think you need to be of that ethnicity/ancestry to use it.
coffee_pies  9/1/2017
I always liked Valentina, and I never really liked Tina or other Tina names such as Justina and Christina. In my opinion Valentina sounds like the name of a beautiful woman with flowing brown curly hair and brown eyes.
XironDarkstar  9/29/2017
The name is derived from the Latin word "valens" meaning "healthy, strong".
