If Anima Libera is good translation for 'Free Spirit' (soul) would the same be true of Cordis Feram for 'Wild Heart'? (Ref. tattoo)?

    "would "Cordis Feram" be a good translation for 'Wild Heart'?"

    No. Please don't   get tattoos in languages you don't understand. What's wrong with "Wild Heart"? It doesn't sound any better or more profound in a language you don't understand.

    Besides, "cordis feram" doesn't mean "wild heart". It means "a wild [something feminine] of the heart"."Feram" is the accusative singular feminine form of the adjective 'wild' but we don't know what the verb is that has produced the accusative form.And "cordis" means "of the/a heart".

    If you just want to say "Wild Heart", write "Cor ferum". But I urge you to stick with English.
