Vale Meaning and Origin

Vale is a unisex name of English origin, meaning: “lives in the valley.” “Vale” is derived from the Old English word “fæl,” which means “valley.” In Latin, “Vale” is the imperative form of the verb “valere,” which means “to be strong” or “to be well.” It is often used as a farewell or goodbye, meaning “be well” or “take care.” However, it is less commonly used as a given name of Latin origin. In Portuguese and Spanish, “Vale” means “valley” and is often used as a surname. It is also used as a place name in many Portuguese-speaking and Spanish-speaking regions. In Welsh, “Vale” (spelled “Fale” or “Fael” in Welsh) is a variant of the name “Mael,” which means “prince” or “chieftain.” It can be used as a given name or a surname.
