This name is really cool to me. It has a nice feel to it, and it sounds very masculine and tough. When I hear it, I don't associate it with the herb.

I like the nickname Val, which is probably more commonly a nickname for Valentine, but I like the sound of Valerian better.

This name is also in use in Georgia, where it is more common than Valeriane, the older Georgian form of Valerianus.

In Georgian, Valerian is written as: ვალერიან.

A known bearer of this name was Valerian Gunia (1862–1938), a Georgian dramatist, actor, director, critic, and translator. [noted -ed]

Valerian is also the Bulgarian, German, Russian and Ukrainian form of Valerianus.

In Bulgaria and Russia, the name is spelled as Валериан. In Ukraine, the name is spelled as Валеріан.

In Germany, it is spelled the same as it is in English. [noted -ed]

Valerian is the name of the *female* love interest of the hero Galen in the 1980s movie "Dragonslayer," who for a long time dressed as a male. It's possible that she was born Valeria, but since her father wanted to protect her/prevent her from being sacrificed to the dragon, he changed her name to Valerian so she could pass herself off as a boy.

I love this name, but there is the herb to be careful of. It gets cats really high, like catnip.

A word of caution, before any parent considers naming their child Valerian, keep in mind that in Australia there is a sleeping pill called Valerian. This might give off the impression that their son is boring!
