My brother is hoping to get a tattoo with out family crest(McNamara) but instead of getting the latin of firmitas in coelo which I translated to mean Strength/Stability in Heaven, he wants to get it in Gaelic but I do not trust my abilities enough to translate it for him. So does anyone know what either Strength or Stability in Heaven would be in Gaelic? And also what Virtue and Valor would translate to(also from the crest). Thank you in advance

I fully expect to be corrected, but here's my shot at 'strength in heaven'....

Looks pretty good actually. :good:

For the others:

Suáilce "Virtue"
Calmacht "Valour"

Suáilce is Calmacht "Virtue and Valour"

or in older font:

Suáilce ⁊ Calmaċt
