The name Valentine would make a cute and unique name for your baby girl, as would Valentina, which is the name of Salma Hayek's daughter. Love would make a beautiful first or middle name, such as the cute name of actress Jennifer Love Hewitt. Heart and Cupid are also unique names for romantic parents. Beyoncé named her daughter Blue Ivy and Alicia Silverstone named her son Bear Blu — so why not give your child a colorful name such as Red or Pink?
