Expert help for Latin needed...any givers?

Reply Wed 18 May, 2016 06:43 am
Being a complete novice with all things Latin, I decided to cut to the chase and reach out to someone, anyone in fact, who knows more than me about the language. My ultimate objective is to create my own design/brand label for goods that I make and sell, that would incorporate a statement in Latin, obviously formulated and spelt correctly.
This is my idea: My proper given name is Amanda, which I am led to believe is derived from Amandus. Google Translator (did I feel an Expert cringe just then?) says "to be loved". Thank you Parents, I couldn't agree more. This is the basis for my label that makes it personal. However, we then come to the correct tense and subject.
This is what I would like: I will be.../
I shall be.../
I must be.../
I am loved.
"I" now being my labelled creation, not me personally!
Google, at this point, throws me bit of a curve ball with english to latin results of ego dilexi; me, diligetur and Diligar. I've lost the Amandus.
So, the long and the short of it is: Could someone please help me with some sensible translation options for the above statements, using "amandus"?
Thanks from a hopeful, creative but latin-challenged person.

Your name comes from the Latin word amo.

Google Translate is giving you answers based on another Latin word for love, diligo.

So let's look at how your phrases would be translated using amo.

I will be.../
I shall be.../

I must be.../
Amanda sum

I am loved.
Amata sum

NOTE: Amandus is masculine. Amanda is feminine.

Thank you George, you are a star.
And when I'm rich & famous I'll give you full credit for my label!

You're welcome Manders.
It will be fun to see my translation swaying back and forth on a pair of jeans.
