Question
Hi, I am looking to translate eternal love into Latin, for my nan/grandad.
I'm not sure which reads better
Amor Aeternus or
Amor Sempiternus

Thankyou.

Answer
Hello,

Both “Amor Aeternus” and “Amor Sempiternus” are correct and mean “Eternal love”, so that you can choose the one you want.

Please note that both AETERNUS and SEMPITERNUS (nominative masculine singular agreed with AMOR) correspond to “eternal” in the sense that this love (AMOR, in Latin) will exist forever.

Best regards,
Maria
