What does valid mean?


Valid is another way to say that something is excellent or of really high quality. It may describe a thing or something more abstract, like a great idea.

Where did valid come from?

The "valid" slang term varies slightly from the actual definition of valid as "logically correct." The slang version of "valid" dates back to at least the early-2000s as a way to classify something as legitimately excellent as if it has passed an imaginary quality test and has been approved as "great" by the slang term user.

While the valid slang term has existed for at least two decades, it experienced a resurgence in popularity in 2020 on TikTok, a video-sharing social site. TikTokers post TikToks with "#valid" accompanying videos that they think are excellent.

How is valid used?

Since valid means excellent, you can use it whenever you want to describe something as awesome or really cool. Examples include describing a person's attractive appearance, high-quality guacamole, or a cool car.
