Why might my coat of arms be missing a motto?

Not all coats of arms historically included mottos. They were personal choices rather than required elements, so mottos can vary even within families. Your surname's coat of arms may simply not have one.

Why isn't my surname listed?

Some surnames, especially more modern or uncommon ones, may not have historical records or associated coats of arms. We also regularly update our database, so your name may be added in the future. Get in touch with us if you have questions about your specific surname.
