This name is growing on me! Not sure if I'd be brave enough to use it as a first...would make a great mn though! It just sounds so nice though....Valentin !

I love Valentin! Great meaning, rich with roots in history, lovely three-syllables and looks elegant written down; it's very dignified and romantic and hits the sweet spot of unusual (not extremely "out there" but not overly popular) for my tastes. Plus I love the Va-len-teen pronunciation here- I don't care too much for Valentine's pn (+ too reminscient of the holiday) or Valentino's (too long and overly much), but Valentin's is just right! This would be great in the middle name spot with a shorter FN- Hugo Valentin, Miles Valentin etc.

I think it would make a good middle name like Grey Valentin!:)

I don't like this name at all. Nor do I like Valentine, Valentina, or Valentino. It's just too much.
