Latin translation:Ventus, Ignis, Anima, Aqua, Terra, Tonitrus (or Tonitruum)
Explanation:
Dear Jesús, these are the standard translations.

Ventus couls also be "aura" if it's a gentle one, but in this case I would choose the general "ventus" which is THE element.

Ignis could be "Flamma" if you prefer a real "fire" which is destroying something but the standard element is "ignis".

Anima is soul, but use "Animus" if you prefer something like "spirit" instead of soul.

Aqua is ALWAYS aqua :)

Terra is ALWAYS terra :) THe standard one (instead of humus, solum, etc).

FOr thunder you can choose either tonitrus (masculine) or "tonitruum" (neuter).

Hope it helped!
