What country was he from?
I could look it up, but I don't want to lol if anyone knows a little about this saint please share with me.
Those are the 3 St. Valentines that have Feb. 14 as their Feast Day (St. Valentine of Terni, St. Valentine of Rome, and the St. Valentine who died in Africa). There are actually other St. Valentines with different feast days - St. Valentine of Ravenna (Nov. 11); St. Valentine of Genoa (May 2); St. Valentine of Trier (July 16); St. Valentin Parquay (Jan. 1); Valentine Berrio-Ochoa (Nov. 1). There was also a Pope Valentine who was pope for about 40 days in 827 (but he was not canonoized a saint).

FYI - St. Valentine's Day has been removed from the universal liturgical calendar of the Church (meaning the calendar of dates celebrated by all Catholics throughout the world) but it is still on some local liturgical calendar can be celebrated in particular locations (like by a church named for the saint). This is probably because the 3 St. Valentines are early Christian martyrs and we just don't know much about any of them. When the universal liturgical calendar was reformed after the Second Vatican Council, saints whose historical origins were obscure were removed from the universal liturgical calendar in order to more fully concentrate on the lives of Christ and his Mother. Those saints whose feasts were retained were generally those whose lives historical scholarship could more easily support.
