Valourine came from the word valour, that means great courage in the face of danger, especially in battle. It was both a brand and an internet identity created and owned by Vonny S. in 2014, an Asian Australian based in Sydney, Australia. They added "-ine" at the end of valour to get valourine as to sound more feminine and to draw on the feminine energy. It serves as a reminder to themselves and hopefully the customers and clients who purchased their arts and designs to have the courage to draw on their divine power to face the tough battle that is everyday life.
