Valentina is gorgeous and truly beautiful in many ways. Romantic, alluring, and glamorous. Valentina is truly an attractive name that no parent could go wrong with. The name is strong as well with its lovely meaning. It doesn’t need a nickname either, perfect just the way it is.
I want to love this name so bad but the “tina” just throws off what I find beautiful about the rest of the name for me. I do adore the names Martina and Alexandrina (Queen Victoria’s name).
People who call this name 'snobbish' or even 'impossible to live up to' have A) very boring taste in names or B) a boring name themselves. Don't take it out on the Valentinas of the world. It's gorgeous, romantic and strikes the perfect balance between refined sophistication and airy, feminine beauty that so many other names try for, but fail to achieve.
A stunning name whose beauty is often buried underneath minute personalities. A bearer of this name who lived up to its beauty, glamour and grace is Valentina Cortese.
Common in Germany.
Beautiful and refined. I know a Valentina. She doesn’t go by any nickname except the nickname Ava that her German father gave her. Lovely girl with great taste. The name is fitting. I'm a big fan.
Valentina Tronel, known simply as Valentina, is a singer from France who won the 2020 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the song "J'Imagine".
I think this name is really pretty.
While I think this name is stunning, I agree that it seems impossible to live up to. I'm not sure how something can be too refined but this is what comes to mind when I think of it. The qualities thought of when seeing or hearing this name are qualities that I don't believe a normal human person can be. I think of someone that is impossibly perfect. Impossibly graceful, impossibly skilled, impossibly well-read and spoken, impossibly patient and kind, lovable and that of the sort. Someone who is practically untouchable and unattainable.
This name is absolutely beautiful and royally romantic. Cosmopolitan is an understatement. I agree that this name may be difficult to pull off. Yes, it's fancy and sophisticated and has flair. It is classical and makes me think of poetry, ballet and sonnets. As do the names Isabella and Francesca. And what's wrong with that? What makes this name so exquisite is that its beauty is understood all over the world. Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Russia, Lithuania, South America, etc. The world as a whole understands what a marvelous name this is! All of the girls named this, don't let negative comments deter you from your beautiful names. They are worthy of all of the praise they receive, oozing such elegance, romance and grace.
This is another fanciful over sophisticated rich spoiled girl Italian name. Lump ‘Valentina’ in with the Isabella’s and Francesca’s. So snooty. I feel bad for the normal parents who believe their children can actually pull off such cold classist names.
I just don't know how to feel about this name! I want to love it but I think of a prim, classical, rich snob. It feels like an inaccessible name that's impossible to live up to. I have read that this name is common amongst Hispanic communities but I've only ever known of Italians, Germans and Eastern Europeans with this name. All of the Italians and Germans are coming from money.
Also used in France.
My best friend is Valentina. She is very pretty with piercing blue-green eyes. They remind me of opal. She is the opposite of what people seem to expect from this name. This is a wonderful name full of life.
I was named after my grandmother, middle name Francesca. I’ve always held mixed feelings about my name, but I’ve never heard negative things from anyone. I’ve also never met another Valentina. I am a ballet dancer and medical student, so I find it surprising that I’ve not yet run into another Valentina. It’s quite nice to read all of the positive comments.
Beautiful name. There is nothing tacky about this name, as it is a rather traditional and long standing name.
Quite tacky if you ask me.
What a gorgeous name! Valentina grew on me.
Valentino and Valentina will be perfect names for boy and girl twins! Both names are respectively handsome and beautiful!
I adore Valentina for a name. It's undeniably beautiful. It's so melodically romantic yet unwaveringly strong, at the same time. I love the association with Valentine's Day, as well, as I think it makes the name even sweeter. Also, I absolutely love the meaning of this name, which is “healthy, strong”. You rarely find a name with a meaning like that, yet I think it is simply wonderful. What parent wouldn't wish strength and health for their angel?
Overall, I think Valentina is such a gorgeous name, and it's one of my personal favorites.
Valentina is my eldest daughter's name. Her whole name is Valentina Noelle. Everyone loves her name and all she gets is compliments...constant compliments! NOBODY calls her "VAL" because people actually enjoy saying this name. Every girl in her school is jealous of her frilly girly name and nobody else has it! I just have to correct anyone that assumes she wants to be called "V" or "Val" as it is rude...if I wanted a child with a boring name, I would have done so. DO NOT CALL MY beauty VAL!
Anyways, she loves her name and so do I. She is extremely outspoken, smart, strong and artsy. Nobody makes fun of her on Valentine's Day...she is currently 6 years old. Whenever I call her name while in a public place..."VALENTINA..." everyone's head turns because it's such a majestic and exotic name-they want to know "who is this girl!"
I’ve heard that this name is seen as very outdated and old fashioned in Russia. (I’m not Russian, BTW. I’ve just always been interested in that country).
Beautiful and sweet.

Beautiful name. Too beautiful to be shortened.
Beautiful, feminine name, Valentina. Has class and beauty. I like this name, it looks good and sounds strong and soft at the same time. Name with quality.
So pretty.

I love it! Such a beautiful sounding name :D.

I once knew a Romanian gypsy named Valentina. We were good friends, so this name has heavenly connotations for me. I also like the sound of the name.
I'm starting to really like this name - it's very strong and pretty. And there are so many possible nicknames - Vi, Val, Vina, Vida, Tina, Tia/Tiya. The list goes on.
It’s pretty, but not really my style. However, I absolutely love the nickname Valley for Valentina. So pretty and earthy!
Also a variant transcription of Ukrainian Валентина :
You'll find numerous Ukrainian bearers on social media.
You can also shorten it to Vina or Val or like in my country Serbia they call me Vanja. Sometimes I don't like nicknames because I think my name is pretty but if they have to nickname me I would choose Vina.
Also Hungarian:
You'll find numerous bearers on social media.
I am still very, very young and when I was about 11 years old I discovered this name and immediately had a liking to it. When I adopt my daughter from Ukraine or Romania, I will give her this name. It sounds like a strong woman with high intellect, who is high-classed and wealthy. I think Valentina is a beautiful name, but I was a little disappointed when I found that it is currently the 94th most popular name. Wish it was a little less unique here in the US so my daughter would have a very beautiful and unique name. Maybe it will be less used in 2035, who knows?

In 2018, 2 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Valentina who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 1, 804th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
I'm actually warming up to this name. It is quite pretty.
It's pretty, but it's way too much for a first name. Maybe a middle name.
The name is derived from the Latin word "valens" meaning "healthy, strong".
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.
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.
This is a lovely female name. The male variant Valentine is the better name, in my opinion, but Valentina has a nice flow.

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.

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.
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.
Simply gorgeous. ;) xoxo.
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 think that this is a very beautiful name. I love the way it sounds and how it has cute connotations of Love and Valentines day :)

One of my favorite names. It's long, but simple and very feminine and you can always shorten it to Tina.
This name is so designer to me! I love it! This name reminds me of a scintillating and wonderful woman!
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!
Feminine and soft, but very strong and classic!
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.
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.
Valentina is also the Croatian form, popular since the 1980's. [noted -ed]

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.

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

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.
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!
I can't explain why, but I really dislike this name.
I love this name. It is so pretty.
Valentina is such a grand, beautiful name.
The Romanian name day for Valentina is 10 February.
