Is the correct Latin translation for the phrase "voice of reason" 'vox ratio' or 'vox rationis'? (Or maybe it's a third option and I'm getting it wrong!)

Thanks!

@George,
hey, are you the Latin expert around here? My son is getting a tattoo and his name is Benjamin, which in its Hebrew derivation means "son of the right hand" but the Biblical usage of that is meant to be "son of honor" since the right hand of God was the position of honor for the Lord. So he now wants to write "son of honor" OR "honored son" in LATIN, not Hebrew - only since he thinks it will look cooler in a callligraphy script. Is it something like filius honorem? Or is that way off? (I'm actually a Spanish teacher, but don't trust online translators one little bit since I know how they butcher Spanish translations, usually! Ha, ha) Please let me know what you think, or options, if there would be more than one way to express that. What we DON'T want it to come out like, is as if he is calling himself The Righteous Son or anthing like that! Not taking anything away from our Lord!! LOL Thanks if you can help.
George

@elisenucci,
You were close. You need the genitive honoris.

Filius Honoris

@George,
cool - thanks - I got the exact reply (change honorem to honoris) from a Latin tutor/honor student I found on Facebook. So now your answer confirms it! Thanks! Oh - one more thing - would you leave both words uncapitalized?

@elisenucci,
In Classical Latin only capital letters were used. It wasn't until the early
middle ages that lower-case letters were added. What's more, in Classical
Latin there was no U. V was used as both vowel and consonant. So if
you're going for a Classical look: FILIVS HONORIS.

I need the translation of
Canere Sponte Aorum.

It's been difficult to find anything accurate. Can you help?

@Madpenguin,
Canere Sponte means "To Sing Spontaneously" or "To Sing of One's Own
Accord". I am not familiar with Aorum. I searched around, but could find
nothing.

Hey my latin is a little rusty but I wanted to know how you would say "The Silent Body" in latin. I thought it was Tacitus Corpus but I get the feeling that is wrong.

@Rxcp93,
Very close.
Corpus is neuter and the adjective should agree.
Generally the adjective follows the non it modifies, so:
Corpus Tacitum

@George,
Thanks so much. One more thing for Corpus. For the 3rd declension neuter, would the Dative and Ablative plural be the same?

Hi George
I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know if the Latin for "burning bright" is "ardenti nitidum"? It's a reference to my friend who died recently and I want to make sure I get it right.
Thanks in advance:)
George

I was wondering if you would be able to make a translation for me into latin.

"Never forget this moment."

I have tried using various translation sites and seem to get many variations. The closest I was able to get by my own deductions was "memento huius temporis" which seems to translate to "remember this time"

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Hope you have a great day!
