WHAT DOES VITALUNA MEAN?
V I T A L U N A (Pronounced veeta-loona) is Latin for “Crazy Life.”
I suppose that I could make up some suitably convincing tale of how this domain name came out of a vision — or epiphany of sorts — but the reality is, we spent a bunch of time Googling for Latin translations of common sayings and witty statements.
Some of the possibilities that didn’t make the cut include:
- cave canem — beware of the dog
- si fecisti nega — if you did it, deny it
- amantes sunt amentes — lovers are lunatics
- ab absurdo — from the absurd
- veni, Vidi, Dormivi — I came, I saw, I slept
- vacca foeda — stupid cow
- re vera, potas bene — say, you sure are drinking a lot.
- insula Gilliganis — Gilligan’s Island
Or, my personal favorite:
- Catapultam habeo. Nisi pecuniam omnem mihi dabis, ad caput tuum saxum immane mittam. – I have a catapult. Give me all the money, or I will fling an enormous rock at your head.
Neither of us knows Latin. Frances knows some Hebrew, but that doesn’t really count towards anything, and has nothing to do with Latin. Fortunately, I’ve learned more than “e pluribus unum” toodling around for domain name suggestions.
You may also notice that http://www.garethjames.com/ also points to this site. I figure that’s the best thing to do until Gareth’s old enough to do his own hand coding.
