valentines day babyI'm not the biggest fan of birthdays falling on the same day as holidays. I understand it's not something that's easily controlled, but I don't know, I always thought it would kinda be a rip-off to be born on Christmas or Halloween. You get gypped -- it isn't just your special day, it's everybody's special day.

For some reason, though, I don't feel that way about Valentine's Day. I honestly can't give you a hard reason as to why this day is the exception -- I suspect it has something to do with the fact that it's kind of a non-holiday to begin with -- but, I don't know, I think it would kind of be a great day to have a birthday. Or better yet, to give birth. So, in honor of the only good "holiday" to be born on -- here are 20 totally sweet Valentine's Day baby names.

Valentine's Day-Inspired Girls' Names:

Valentina

Love

Candy

Lacey

Rose

Ruby

Venus

Violet

Scarlet

Amora

Valentine's Day-Inspired Boy Names:

Roman

Teddy

Valentino

Court

Thaddeus (Aramaic for "Heart")

Romeo

David (Hebrew for "Dearly Loved")

Beau

Adonis (Greek for "Adonis")

Eros (Greek for "Love")

Cute, no? I think my favorites on the list are Scarlet and Thaddeus. (Yes, I'm serious.) Valentina and Valentino are a little too festive for my taste, but other than that, I kind of like them all. And I really like a Valentine's Day-born baby.

Which names do you like best?
