Makes me think of the song "My Funny Valentine" :-)

It's the name of Ender Wiggin's sister from the book Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. I think it's better for a girl than a guy.

In the movie Mirrormask, one of the main characters was named Valentine.

I like this name a lot. It sounds so classy! But the problem is that there would definitely be some very immature people who would never give a child named Valentine a momet's peace. *Sigh* . . . Another good name destroyed.

I really prefer the name Valentine for a guy to a girl. A girl makes it seem vaguely annoying and vain, and incredibly delicate. For a guy it comes off as strong as it should.

This is my daughter's name (taken from her grandfather's middle name). We got a lot of grief from family members because it is unusual and people either love it or hate it. We call her Val or Valley. Take my advice: don't tell relatives names until after the child is born, have fun with names and if the first name is unusual keep the middle name simple, in case s/he wants to go by something more traditional.

Bonus: she gets lots of gifts on V-Day.

Valentine is also the name of Maximillian Morrel's lover in "The Count of Monte Christo".

In the film "By Hook or by Crook," Valentine is the main character, a female to male transvestite.

I like Valentinus better for a boy, but it's a bit of a mouthful, as the "us" comes off as pompous to most people.

Such a strong and masculine name! Also, of course, undeniably romantic. I love it.

Valentine Michael Smith is the full name of the main character in Robert Heinlein's novel "Stranger in a Strange Land."

I had to laugh out loud when I read that someone here thinks it's strong on a guy. It's the most feminine sounding name I've ever heard. I like it on a girl.

I MUCH prefer this on a boy. When used on a girl it sounds like an incredibly immature self-centered rich girl. It's a wonderful name for a boy- I think. Only drawback is the teasing. It's just too associated with V-day. At least for a first name! I wouldn't hesitate to use this in the middle spot. :)

This is supposed to be a boy's name! This trend of giving girls masculine names is so annoying! But I don't think if ever in a million years name my son Valentine, teasing is completely unavoidable with a name like this. But I do know a man whose middle name is Valentine.

To the anonymous poster saying this is a boys name: only in English is this considered a male name. In fact the suffix "ine" is a feminization of the suffix "in" which makes this a feminization of the name Valentín. It's not fair to say this is a boys name that's gone to the girls, St. Valentine is St. Valentinus, Valentín and Valentino in other languages.

I think it's a great name male or female.

Valentine is a classy, beautiful, blessed, very handsome, and romantic name for a boy. ^-^

This is obviously a female name. Only an idiot or an American would use it on a boy.

I actually like this name a lot, even though it's heavily associated with the holiday, but who cares!

As a first name I much prefer Valentine on a woman. However, I do think it makes a classy male middle name - and as a middle name, the association with Valentine's Day isn't quite as strong.

The name Valentine was given to 31 boys born in the US in 2015.
HerculePoirot  6/22/2016
Except for the holiday and of course, the saint, I have never really given this name much thought. However, I recently came across this novel where the hero was named Valentine. I have grown to love the name. I agree with a previous poster that it sounds romantic, like a name from a storybook but it does not sound silly or "weak" at all. It conjures an image of a handsome, manly, intelligent, well-mannered, sophisticated man.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned it yet... but there was a character in Fallout Four named Nick Valentine (not a toaster) who helps you find your son, Shawn. He's a synth and has his own detective agency in the heart of Diamond City. Valentine can be set as a companion (and he's just pretty cool. A synth as a companion //SPOILER WARNING x"D//
Who is actually a cop from 2077 with his memories put into a robot to stay alive as an experiment? So sad but so cool).
