Not much subtlety here. A strong arm, or Arm-Strong if you will. The ‘Invictus Maneo’ literally translates as ‘I remain unvanquished’, but there’s some Latin punning going on here. First, maneo ‘I remain’ is invoking another Latin word ‘manus’ meaning ‘hand’. Second, and much less subtle, the fuller motto of the Armstrongs is ‘Vi et arms Invictus maneo’ – through STRENGTH and ARMS I remain unconquered.’
