Collins (Ireland) meaning of family motto
Posted by: David Collins (ID *****5249) Date: December 26, 2006 at 16:48:52

My family has a number of heirlooms bearing the Collins Coat of Arms as registered in Ireland. (Two lions 'rampant and combatant' and a pelican vulning herself). Attached to this is the motto, "Dant Vulnera Vitam" (the wounds give life).

This motto is apparently pretty common to the Collins name - I'm wondering if anyone knows its origin? Thanks.
