Latin to English Translation

by Emily

Dear Latin Teacher,

Does the two word phrase "Patronus Liberum" mean - advocate or protector of children? Is there a better Latin phrase to convey this?

Thank you,


Dear Emily,

Your Latin phrase is correct. Patronus liberum may mean protector of children.

The word liberum is a genitive plural meaning of the children. Its full form is liberorum, but the syllable -or- was often removed, leaving liberum.

Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
