Making this selection for your newborn can be an exciting, but also somewhat intimidating, process to go through and complete. You may be perplexed as to which middle name will best match your daughter’s given name given the plethora of options.

What Does The Name Valerie Mean?

Valerie is a name for women that is derived directly from the French Valérie (a female-only name). Valéry or Valery is a common surname in Francophone nations and a masculine given name in areas of Europe (especially France and Russia). Valre is a French male version that is much rarer.


The name has a Romance flavor to it. Valerius is a masculine Latin clan name that means “power, health, or courage.” Valeria is the female version of this. French is used to translate both masculine and feminine given names into other languages.

People believe that the name of their children can have an impact on their future success in life. It can also have a bearing on a child, what their name means. As a result, people often choose names based on their meanings, believing that the meaning of the child’s name may reflect the nature of the child or influence the child later on.

What are middle names for?

Your daughter’s middle name is one that she will keep with her for the rest of her life, which is a wonderful thing. Of course, middle names aren’t absolutely necessary in terms of legal requirements, but they do add a little something extra to the overall flavor of our names.

And, to be completely honest, they do come in helpful every now and then. Often people can make the middle name a nickname later on or even you can put the initials together to form a new name, for example, Valerie Kimberly could become VKI! 

Research has also indicated that having middle names improves people’s chances of getting a better job in the future! According to a study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, people who have middle names are believed to have a high social position and to be intellectually superior.
