Latin Tattoo: Love for my mother
(Camden, NSW, Australia)
I'm looking at getting a tattoo for the meaning "Love for my mother", how would I write this in the Latin language?
Hi Krystina,Amor matri
, where matri
is dative, means Love for my mother. If you want to really emphasize that it is your own mother that you love, then you may add meae
, so amor matri meae
Word order might be changed to matri amor
, matri meae amor
, or matri amor meae
. Which ever form looks best in the design.
I always say that I don't answer tattoo questions anymore, and then every once in a while I answer one.
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
