My three sons were 'given' a star for their Christening.

It has been decided to name it 'Always Brothers' the Latin translation being the above... But which way round?!

My friend Google is unclear and I want a definitive if possible please!

Thanks!!

Had NO idea where to post this by the way confused

I'm not a Latin expert, but know that because it's an inflected language, you can go either way.

I'd choose 'semper fratres' because I think the cadence sounds better that way round, and because it's a nod to 'semper fi'

Excellent thanks so much!

Yes I had come across Semper Fi too (my youngest's nickname is Fe!).
