I would like to engrave a piece in Latin for my teenage son with our “family motto.” The motto is strength, love and courage. He is studying Latin and I want to be sure the word choice is accurate. The intended meaning is to be one of/with strength (of character, body, and mind), love, and courage.
I have researched and found the words (to be engraved in capitals):
VIRTVS * AMOR * FORTITVDO
Could someone please tell me if these are an accurate translation and representation of the intended meaning? I am plan to have three words verses a phrase.
Are virtus and fortitudo redundant? I understand virtus to be of moral, mental strength and bravery and fortitudo to be of physical strength and courage.
