Quick help with some latin

I'm looking for the most direct translation of:

To My Everything



in Latin.

I've gotten 3 or 4 different translations and a friend of mine needs it for a wedding band so we are really really trying to get it right....


Can anyone help?

I dont know if specific Latin speakers frequent the Languages forum MK, I'll move this to Lem Stand where there is more traffic.

And uh, I dont even speak English, let alone Latin
Sorry!

I believe HeartlandGirl has a degree of some sorts in Latin, MA or BA. (then again, she may have made it up.....it wouldnt suprise me......)

I will attempt to direct her this way.

I got an A in GCSE Latin




But I can't remember any of it.

I think 'to' might be 'Ad'. But it might not.

Wow. I'm a lot of use, aren't I!

The adjective 'omnis' means 'every' or 'all'. Typically, the plural omnia is translated as 'all things' or 'everything'. But I'm not sure you want to refer to one person in the plural. So try this:

If the person is female:

"Meae omni"

If the person is male:

"Meo omni"

Literally, those mean "to my all" which can then more loosely mean "to my everything." The word for 'to' doesn't show up because it's built into the words, which are in the dative case, meaning "to" or "for," as in I gave a present "to you" (dative).

If you want the plural, it would be "Meis omnibus."

This one's tricky because in Latin, they might say "You are all things to me" but I don't think they'd ever say "You are my everything." Omnis is much more literal than metaphorical.

I'll think on it a little more and let you know if I can come up with something better. I'd be interested in seeing what you have come up with so far.

Irrumabo et pedicabo...

By the way, you probably don't want to use a translation that uses "ad." "Ad" means "to" in a directional sense, as in, I walked to the store.
