John E was saying his family crest had the motto "feros ferio", which I remember as being something like fierce fiercity? (He'll have to correct my memory).
The French side of my family has a crest with the motto something like "We Endure"
My Italian name means "Kiss of the Wolf", so I don't want* to know what that motto is.
If you have a family crest and motto, what is it? If you don't, what would it be if you could start one?
