    Question Valen/Valens for a girl or boy?

    I quite like the names Valen and Valens... although I am not sure if I prefer them for a boy or a girl!

    Whats your opinion...Do you like them? Which one is better?? And are they better for boy or girl?

    Cheers?

    I honestly love Valen. I had a friend several years ago who had a son named Valen, I remember thinking it was one cool name! I also like Vale/Vail for a boy, though, too. I can't really see Valen on a girl because of her son, but strangely enough, I sort of like Valens for a girl. Or you could do something like Valentina, which marks it firmly in the feminine camp, and use the nn Valen/Valens?

    The name makes me think of two people: Roman Emperor Valens and singer Richie Valens who sang the 50's song "La Bamba" and died in a plane crash with Buddy Holly. I can only see the name on a boy. It does remind me of drapery word "valance" so I don't have a great liking for the name.
    All the best,

    Have to agree with the other posters. Valen/Valens is all boy for me. I love the suggestion of fn Valentina with nn of Valen though!

    I prefer Valen to Valens. I like it and would definitely see it as a boys name. Vale is also great.
