Meaning & Origins

From an Old French name of Germanic (Frankish) origin, derived from gār, gēr ‘spear’ + wald ‘rule’. It was adopted by the Normans and introduced by them to Britain. There has been some confusion with Gerard. It died out in England at the end of the 13th century. However, it continued to be popular in Ireland, where it had been brought in the 12th century at the time of Strongbow's invasion. It was used in England in the 17th century and revived in the 19th century, along with several other long-extinct names of Norman, Old English, and Celtic origin, and is now more common than Gerard, which survived all along as an English ‘gentry’ name.
124th in the U.S.
English and Scottish: from a medieval personal name, Latin Valentinus, a derivative of Valens (see Valente), which was never common in England, but is occasionally found from the end of the 12th century, probably as the result of French influence. The name was borne by a 3rd-century saint and martyr, whose chief claim to fame is that his feast falls on 14 February, the date of a traditional celebration of spring going back to the Roman fertility festival of Juno Februata. A 5th-century missionary bishop of Rhaetia of this name was venerated especially in southern Germany, being invoked as a patron against gout and epilepsy. It is probably also an Americanization of Valentin, Valentino, and possibly other European cognates.
