Meaning of the baby name VALENTINUS.

  

VALENTINUS.  Roman name meaning "healthy" and "valiant," from valeo (to be well).

    Valentinus was a Roman priest, who is said to have endeavoured to give a Christian signification to the old custom of drawing lots in honour of Juno Februata, and thus fixed his own name and festival to the curious fashion prevailing all over England and France, of either the choice of a "true Valentine," or of receiving as such the first person of the opposite sex encountered on that morning.
    These customs increased the popularity of Valentine and Valentina, the latter being more probably used as the feminine of the former, than as the name of an obscure martyr who died under Diocletian. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
