    I am not entirely sure this is a Latin word. If not, what would the root meaning of this relate to?

    Thank you!

    • Civis Illustris
    Cygnea, Gena
    It looks like the imperative of confirmo (or confirmare in the infinitive), which has the root meaning "to make firm, to establish, to strengthen, to confirm"
  3. Dantius Homo Sapiens

    • Civis Illustris
    in orbe lacteo
    And the imperative is a command, like "hey you, strengthen!"
