Valentine Names

I'm not even sure yet if I'm pregnant, but if I am, I will be due in February and I want to give a subtle nod to Valentine's day. If I have a boy, I really like Hartley. I'm not sure about a girl name, though. I don't like Valentina or Juliet. Any other suggestions?

I had formerly considered Rosalind, but I thought is was pronounced Rose-uh-lin, not Rawz-a-lin. I considered Rosalinda, too, but I'm not hispanic and I would feel too pretentious pronouncing it correctly. Golden is cute, too. I like Adora, nn Dora.

Dulcea is pretty. Is it pronounced Dull-see-ah or Dool-see-ah? Or another way? I also like Corwin, but it's too close to Corbin, who's a relative of mine, and not the kind I want to name a child after.

Kerensa means "love" in Cornish. I prefer Hart to Hartley, but both are nice. I actually really like Romeo, but I know I'm in the minority on that one. You could use Loveday (another great Cornish name),

I like Romeo too but DH says no! Kerensa is also pretty. I'm not a fan of Loveday. Is it pronounced as written?

Loveday is pnonounced "love-dee". I'm sure you will find something that is just right. You could consider names like Honor, Honora, Verity, Truman/True,
