Family motto

The word “mot­to” comes from the Latin “dev­idere” which means “to divide”. The mean­ing of the name sug­gests that the mot­to — usu­al­ly one of the com­po­nents of the ban­ner or coat of arms — has always been locat­ed out­side the main ele­ments depict­ed on them. As a rule, a spe­cial mot­to rib­bon (or part of it) was assigned to the mot­to, occu­py­ing a sep­a­rate place allot­ted to it on the field of the coat of arms or ban­ner.

Con­cepts such as fam­i­ly coat of arms and mot­to they invari­ably take us back to His­to­ry, and there is noth­ing strange in this: even in Ancient Rome, the mot­to of the fam­i­ly deter­mined the foun­da­tions that guid­ed all its mem­bers, and spoke a lot about the his­to­ry and mer­its of this fam­i­ly. As for the Latin mot­tos — the max­ims of the Eter­nal City — they sub­se­quent­ly became the basis for the mot­tos of many coun­tries.

There are three types of slo­gans:

  • curly mot­tos. Such mot­tos, in fact, are emblems, and in some cas­es they are the emblems of indi­vid­ual states or dynas­ties. Remem­ber the lily — the emblem of the French roy­al dynas­ties, or the rose — the emblem of Eng­land;
  • mot­tos com­bin­ing fig­u­ra­tive and ver­bal images. Some­times this is resort­ed to in order to sup­ple­ment the main mot­to with an aux­il­iary one in an unob­tru­sive form. But quite often the fig­u­ra­tive image sim­ply illus­trates the ver­bal form of the mot­to;
  • ver­bal slo­gans. This group of mot­tos is the most com­mon and easy to under­stand.

How rel­e­vant is the con­cept of the mot­to of the fam­i­ly in our time? For a huge num­ber of fam­i­lies in Euro­pean coun­tries, it nev­er lost its rel­e­vance: in them, from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion, the fam­i­ly coat of arms of the fam­i­ly and its mot­to were kept unchanged.

If you ask why a fam­i­ly mot­to is need­ed at all, and what is its mean­ing, the answer may sur­prise you a lit­tle. A thought or a word, expressed aloud, acquires an inde­pen­dent life and begins to per­sis­tent­ly seek ways for its embod­i­ment. Motto of a young familyRepeat­ed by some­one repeat­ed­ly, they, over time, acquire the abil­i­ty to large­ly deter­mine the course of the speak­er’s fate.

There­fore, the mot­to of the fam­i­ly, passed down from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion, is able to con­trol and guide the actions and life path of each of the gen­er­a­tions. It is very unlike­ly that a per­son whose fam­i­ly mot­to for cen­turies (even decades!) has been the words “Hon­or is dear­er than life” will be able to act unworthi­ly. In oth­er words, the mot­to gives quite deep infor­ma­tion about the fam­i­ly and its mem­bers. A mot­to can be espe­cial­ly impor­tant for a young fam­i­ly, and this is absolute­ly under­stand­able: the words they choose as their fam­i­ly mot­to will guide them through life.

Do not be lazy and think about what, in your opin­ion, best reflects the essence of your fam­i­ly? What image? What sym­bol? What phrase or word? Do you imag­ine your fam­i­ly as a close-knit, insep­a­ra­ble ball? Look for a mot­to that describes a close-knit fam­i­ly! All fam­i­ly mem­bers are not couch pota­toes at all, and love to play sports very much? Choose a mot­to that speaks of a sports fam­i­ly!

What if the fam­i­ly is both friend­ly and ath­let­ic? There are two exits. Or choose for your­self one, the gen­er­al mot­to of the fam­i­ly, reflect­ing both one and the oth­er fea­ture. Or choose two sep­a­rate mot­tos: one mot­to — for a friend­ly fam­i­ly, and sec­ond the mot­to is for a sports fam­i­ly. They can coex­ist per­fect­ly togeth­er.

If there are chil­dren in the fam­i­ly, it is just right to think about the chil­dren’s mot­tos of the fam­i­ly. Such mot­tos fall under the def­i­n­i­tion of a per­son­al mot­to. All states­men and out­stand­ing per­son­al­i­ties of His­to­ry had and have a per­son­al mot­to.

Name and mottos of the family

A per­son­al mot­to can change through­out the life of its own­er, and be not only per­ma­nent, but also tem­po­rary — when it is put for­ward only for a spe­cif­ic sit­u­a­tion.

Your fam­i­ly’s child­hood mot­to may have a hint of a joke while the baby is still very young, but over time it is bet­ter to replace it with a more seri­ous sym­bol. Per­haps you will like the mot­to “Oblig­at­ed, so I can!”, Which led Alexan­der Suvorov through life.
