Etymology of the name VALERIUS.
Meaning of the baby name VALERIUS.


VALERIUS.  From Latin valeo (to be well), hence "healthy" and "valiant."  Also see Valère, Valerot, and Valerian. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

    Valerius, the hero and title of a novel by J. G. Lockhart (1821).  Valerius is the son of a Roman commander settled in Britain.  After the death of his father, he is summoned to Rome, to take possession of an estate to which he is the heir.  At the villa of Capito he meets with Athanasia, a lady who unites the Roman grace with the elevation of the Christian.  Valerius becomes a Christian also, and brings Athanasia to Britain.  The display at the Flavian amphitheatre is admirably described.  A Christian prisoner is brought forward, either to renounce his faith or die in the arena; of course, the latter is his lot.
    (This is one of the best Roman stories in the language.). (The Reader's Handbook of Famous Names in Fiction, &c., Brewer, 1899)
