I really like [name_u]Vale[/name_u]. I grew up near a street called [name_u]Vale[/name_u] Rd and always planned to use it in a future daughter’s name (I must admit I was a little grumpy when it started to catch on here on the forums! It’s still extremely rare [name_m]IRL[/name_m] though, so ignore me.)

I agree with pp that it feels calm. I think it has a lot going for it, as a sleek and versatile word name.

I would definitely pair [name_u]Vale[/name_u] with a longer, more feminine middle. I would avoid any names that start with L- so they don’t blend together with the ending of [name_u]Vale[/name_u].

I love the suggestions of [name_f]Anastasia[/name_f] and [name_f]Gabriella[/name_f]! More ideas:

[name_u]Vale[/name_u]…

[name_f]Adelina[/name_f]
[name_f]Amabel[/name_f]
[name_f]Caterina[/name_f]
[name_f]Cecilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Isadora[/name_f]
[name_f]Juliette[/name_f]
[name_f]Naomi[/name_f]
[name_f]Penelope[/name_f]
[name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f]
[name_f]Seraphina[/name_f]
[name_f]Tallulah[/name_f]
[name_f]Tatiana[/name_f]

So unique, and in all honesty, I have never heard of that. I wouldn’t use it myself because it isn’t my style, but oh so cute! I could totally see a little ‘[name_u]Vale[/name_u]’. Go for it!

I really like the suggestions of [name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] and [name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Naomi[/name_f]. Other ideas:

[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Octavia[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Imogen[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Cassandra[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Dorothea[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f]/[name_f]Gwendolen[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Susannah[/name_f]

Honestly, I’m not a fan of the name [name_u]Vale[/name_u].
It makes me think covered, shadows, like a veil of darkness.

Maybe that’s just me though :slight_smile:

I like [name_u]Valentine[/name_u], [name_f]Vera[/name_f], and [name_m]Vaughn[/name_m] though!

I really like [name_u]Vale[/name_u], although I’ve only considered it as a middle so far. It has a certain earthy strength to it, as well as some interesting imagery, and I can sort of imagine it on both girls and boys.
Some middles:
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Cassandra[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_u]Damaris[/name_u]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Thomasina[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Adira[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Nyssa[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Sahar[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Samara[/name_f]

[name_u]Vale[/name_u] does nothing for me…as do [name_u]Gale[/name_u] and [name_u]Dale[/name_u]. These names rhyme with so many words in the English alphabet and can be insulting…Frail [name_u]Vale[/name_u], Stale [name_u]Vale[/name_u], [name_u]Vale[/name_u] the Whale, etc. I wouldn’t do that to my child.

I think it’s beautiful! I’m loving the longer, more feminine middle names suggested so far: [name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Susannah[/name_f], [name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Thomasina[/name_f], [name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Seraphina[/name_f], [name_u]Vale[/name_u] [name_f]Dorothea[/name_f], etc.

What sprang to mind for me, oddly, was the winner of this year’s NB “Invent A Name” contest: [name_u]Vale[/name_u] Rosaluna. [name_m]How[/name_m] about it?

I really like [name_u]Vale[/name_u] for any gender and love the pairing of longer middles with it.
