English term or phrase: Love makes us invincible
Family Motto



Thank you!
Robbie Taylor
Latin translation:Amor nos invictos facit
Explanation:
Amor = Love (Latin had no articles)
Nos = us
invictos = invincible (grammatically speaking it's an object, therefore we use the accusative case; if it were a subject then we'd say "invicti")
facit = makes (the meaning of "facere" is, among others, "to turn something or someone into something or someone else")

In English many more words than one would believe derive from Latin:
amorous from amor
invincible from invincibilis
(but invictus also means "that cannot be won)
fact from this same verb facere

Vale! (Goodbye!)
