    I'm sorry, I know it's meaningful to you, but I really hate the idea. If it helps, my mother and her one sister (she has 3) have the same middle name (Anne/Ann). My mum has always hated that she has to share her middle name with her older sister, and that she got the more dated spelling of Ann. She said she feels as though her parents just ran out of names so reused everything (her first middle name is Ann, second is my nana's first name).

    There's nothing wrong with it, but it's a personal pet peeve. Whenever I see a birth announcement (usually it's the London Telegraph ones) that has 2+ siblings sharing a middle name, I actually feel my toes curl. I just feel as though the younger children might take it the way my mum has, and feel as though their name was valued less because their parents just took the older sibling's middle name and reused it a bunch of times.

    How about using names connected to Valentine? Here's a list of some romantic girl baby names for you:

    Hopefully I was able to help somewhat, but as others have said, in the end, it's your baby/babies, not ours.

    Florence, Edith, Doris, Alice, Elsie, Lillian, Violet, Mabel, Ada, Evelyn
    Eva, Edna, Minnie, Martha, Amelia, Phoebe, Sylvia, Hazel, Agatha, Beatrice


    Matthew, Ernest, Louis, Christopher, Andrew, Albert, George, Joshua, James, Harry
    Freddie, Henry, Adam, Teddy, Daniel, Percy, Mark, Walter, Stanley, Liam


    when you've been fighting for it all your life, you've been struggling every day and night,
    it's how a superhero learns to fly

    I don't think it's a crime. Rob and Amber Mariano (from Survivor) has 3 daughters who all have Rose as a middle name. I think it's cute, and is something that would "tie" the sisters together, the two Valentines -- they could both have 2 Valentine heart necklaces that they could wear. I know two girls who are sisters and both have first names that start with S, and they always buy necklaces and charm bracelets for each-other that has the letter S on them.

    I think Valentine is a name of substance and is more interesting than filler names that people usually pick for their child's middle name.

    Hm, I don't love it, but it's your call! What if you changed it up just a bit for each child? ie. Valentine, Valerie, Valentina, Valentio, Valeryn, Valiant - sort of thing. It's still ties them all together without being identical.

    I'm not a fan, but perhaps because I'm the youngest. I understand Valentine's meaningful, and I could see it working a bit better as a second middle name... BUT I'd completely feel like 3/3 (the last in the set), rather than an individual. I also have a hard time believing you wouldn't be able to find another name you like as much and that has meaning. If it's the link to the day that's meaningful, why not choose a name related to Valentine's or love?
