My NameEdit

Dator Vitae means ‘giver of life’ or ‘life giver’ in Latin.



Dator is a Latin word meaning ‘giver’, ‘donor’, or, more abstractly, ‘one who gives’. It is a masculine noun from the Proto-Indo-European word *déh₃tōr.

Related word entries on Wiktionary:


Vitae is the genitive singular of the Latin word vita meaning ‘life’, with vitae therefore meaning ‘of life’. It is from the Proto-Italic word *gʷītā, which itself possibly came from Proto-Indo-European *gʷih₃wo-teh₂.

Auxiliary verb conjugation tablesEdit

My Norman conjugation tables display the subjunctive pronoun forms and imperative pronoun forms specific to the verb being conjugated as opposed to showing all possible subjunctive pronoun forms and imperative pronoun forms that are not used with the specific verb in question. This achieves two things:

  1. It reduces visual clutter in the conjugation table
  2. It makes the conjugation table easier to use and more accurate to the verb.

This applies not only to the my Norman auxiliary verb conjugation tables, but also all other verbs – regular or irregular.

Aver – to haveEdit
Êt' – to beEdit
R'aver — to get back, have backEdit

Irregular verb conjugation tablesEdit

Craithe – to believe, thinkEdit

Regular verb conjugation tablesEdit
