I am on a quest to create a new last name for myself.
I like the idea of "wildcard," particularly in the computing sense: as a placeholder for anything, however I want something that sounds more like a last name than just using "wildcard." (I also don't want my name to be poor translation, like a regrettable tattoo of a Chinese character that actually means "spicy chicken.")
So my question is, does the following capture my intention?
Feracarta or Cartafera?
In the searching I've done, "fera" seems to more commonly refer to wild animals in particular, rather than a more general wild: "ferox," which seems like more of the meaning I'd like to capture (headstrong, courageous, fierce), but "ferox" does not combine together as well into a name, in my opinion.
I haven't been able to find "carta" in a Latin dictionary, but it came up in the the etymology of "card" on Google, so that part could be totally incorrect?
