Ablative singular case -meaning with word Humilitate


New Member
Sorry in advance, I don’t know any Latin and just came to try and get some clarity.
I have a crest associated with my middle name but my family has very little info on it other than the photo that has been passed down. Under the crest is the word “Humilitate”. Google explained this is an ablative singular case of the root word. But I’m confused as how that translates to meaning.

My understanding is it means movement away from something, removal or separation. The root word humilitas mean unimportance or insignificance...can someone explain this to me like I’m 5. Movement or removal of unimportance or insignificance....I feel like I am not putting these together correctly.

With Christianity this word took on a positive significance.
