English term or phrase: Heart of Valor
We have been looking for alternate names to use for this as the name is already taken as it is.

cor forte
Explanation:
Literally, 'valorous heart'.

The literal translation would be, 'cor e fortitudine factum', 'a heart made out of valour' (ablative of material), but this perhaps sounds too cumbersome.

Nor can one simply translate 'cor fortitudinis' (genitive of quality or description), since classical Latin doesn't allow this construction unless the genitive is modifed by an adjective, e.g., 'cor magnae fortitudinis', 'a heart of great valour'.
