Griffin and Valentine as twins?

Would you pair the two?
They’re two of my favorites right now but the styles may be just too different. I like that they have similar meanings though.
What would you call [name_u]Valentine[/name_u]’s twin?

I think they’re too different style-wise, sorry.

I would name [name_u]Valentine[/name_u]’s twin…
[name_u]Valentine[/name_u] and [name_u]Phoenix[/name_u]
[name_u]Valentine[/name_u] and [name_u]Constantine[/name_u]
[name_u]Valentine[/name_u] and [name_m]Sylvester[/name_m]
[name_u]Valentine[/name_u] and [name_m]Sylvan[/name_m]
[name_u]Valentine[/name_u] and [name_m]Ignatius[/name_m]
[name_u]Valentine[/name_u] and [name_m]Percival[/name_m]
[name_u]Valentine[/name_u] and [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u]
[name_u]Valentine[/name_u] and [name_m]Devereaux[/name_m]

I would use something long and bold with [name_u]Valentine[/name_u].

They work together.
Of the mentioned I like:
[name_u]Constantine[/name_u]
[name_u]Florian[/name_u] (but very themey with Valentines [name_u]Day[/name_u])
[name_m]Devereaux[/name_m]
[name_m]Amadeus[/name_m]

Don’t do [name_u]Phoenix[/name_u]. You’d be switching one bird for another with the same syllable count.

I’ll add [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] and [name_m]Silvanus[/name_m].

Griffin and [name_u]Valentine[/name_u] aren’t the most obvious pair but I think they have some qualities in common. I picture both names as soft-yet-masculine, with an aura of romance in both.

I would pair [name_u]Valentine[/name_u] with:

Armand.
[name_m]Ferdinand[/name_m]
[name_u]Augustine[/name_u]
[name_m]Lucian[/name_m]
[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
[name_m]Emmanuel[/name_m]
[name_m]Bernard[/name_m]
[name_m]Raphael[/name_m]
[name_u]Gabriel[/name_u]

Thanks all!! :blush: I think I may pair [name_u]Valentine[/name_u] with one of these more fabulous suggestions or use it as a middle if I was naming a brother to [name_u]Griffin[/name_u].
I particularly like [name_m]Raphael[/name_m] with it but there are so many beautiful names to choose from!

They feel quite different to me. I’ve known a few Griffins so while it’s mythological, it also feels like a solid 90s/00s choice (but not in a dated way at all). [name_u]Valentine[/name_u] feels super vintage and uncommon. I like the previous suggestions of [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u], [name_m]Maximilian[/name_m], [name_m]Sylvester[/name_m], [name_m]Evander[/name_m], and [name_m]Raphael[/name_m].

I would think [name_u]Griffin[/name_u] and [name_u]Valentine[/name_u] were a boy and a girl. [name_u]Valentine[/name_u] just doesn’t read male to me, even though I know it’s unisex.
