An author friend recently asked me for help with a Latin name: in his book, a group calls itself the "order of protection and conservation", but in Latin to be pretentious (altum videtur…).
My immediate thought was ōrdō prōtectiōnis cōnservātiōnisque:
- ōrdō for this sort of "order" is well-attested, both classically and in modern times
- prōtegō is a fine word for "protect" but dēfendō and tūtor work just as well, I'll ask which he likes the best
- cōnservō is straightforwardly "conserve" and I can't think of any other Latin verb for that
However, I'm not at all certain about using a verbal noun in the genitive for this. Latin generally likes participles and gerunds and the like where English would use a verbal noun. Is there a better grammatical construction for this sort of thing, attested either classically or later?
