Other Origin(s):Latin, German, Italian
Meaning:healthy; strong
Long before Valerie caressed the world over from Amy Winehouse's melodic rendition, the feminine name held its own as a French variant of Valeria. Formed from the Latin word valere, with additional connections to German and Italian, which means "to be healthy" or "strong," Valerie bears a striking resemblance to the word valor. Indeed, strength and courage are the beating heart of Valerie—elements only improved by the 3rd-century martyr, St. Valerie. It is said her conviction was so strong that upon beheading, she carried her own head back to the bishop. Truly a powerful name to bestow upon any burgeoning leader or revolutionary mind.
