Meaning: Poetic term for a valley
Other forms: N/A
Savannah Guthrie of "The Today Show" just had a little girl she named Vale Guthrie Feldman. I've liked the name Vale for a really long time, though I actually prefer it for a boy. A vale is a poetic word for a valley, which comes from the Old French val, which was derived from the Latin vallis or vallem which meant "valley". I'm sure a few of you have even heard of the "vale of years" from "Othello", and the "vale of tears" saying. I think Vale is a really lovely and obscure nature name, that doesn't seem overly hippie.
