Probably the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Valentine is a good start.

Valentine's day seems to be blamed on Chaucer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine%27s_Day and the link talks about the Valentine being referred to as different from the Saint Valentine.

Note that the first wikipedia link talks about there being 14 different Valentines.
