Have you seen the entry for this language in the Language Subtag 

Type: language
Subtag: ca
Description: Catalan
Description: Valencian
Added: 2005-10-16
Suppress-Script: Latn

Both names, "Catalan" and "Valencian," are provided and have equal 
standing in the Registry.  The fact that "Catalan" is listed before 
"Valencian" does not imply that one name is preferred over the other, 
either in the Registry or in the underlying ISO 639 standard.  The same 
is true for "Spanish" and "Castilian," for "Dutch" and "Flemish," and 
for "Romanian" and "Moldavian" and "Moldovan."
