She was going to be named Alicia, but one night while driving I heard the song "Valerie" by Stevie Winwood. I remembered how much I had liked the name growing up and named her Valerie. It's a beautiful and uncommon name in a day of Taylors, Brittanys,and Gias." Nov. 10, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • ""Valerie" is loosely translated from Latin "valere"; I know this because I studied Latin in college. On the first day we opened the textbook to page two, and the word "valere" was the first word we learned (pronounced "wah-LEH-reh" rolling that "r") as a verb meaning "having great power." I grinned and thought to myself, if that isn't an 11:11 prompt, I don't know what is!!! You better believe I have power, Baby. I won't come into my full power until I am in my 60's. I am now 46 and still hip deep in studying complex mysticism and the physics of metaphysics. Through a medium, Edgar Cayce spoke to me, said he'd come to speak especially to me, and told me that I would one day be more powerful than the medium channeling him. He did not divulge what my purpose would be, and although I have a vague vision of it, I am never allowed to see myself in full form. I think it would probably scare me if I did. I've been this way all of my life. Men are very attracted to me but generally can't hang for very long. It's depressing, but I understand. At least I have a lot of precious memories for the treasure box inside my heart of hearts. And a helluva future to look forward to." Jul. 10, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "i just learned that the name VALERIE...is from old french latin and it means strong, valor and valiant.
