i do not mind at all. Actually i just read a few of the first posts and he seemed very knowledgeable so i directed to him. But your help is appreciated. Just for the record, if i were to have exactly what you replied tattoed on my arm would it be absolutley correct. I am not saying it is not i just want to make sure because it is irreversible. Once again, thanks for the reply.

No, because "s' agapo" is "I love". Here you give me the noun "love" so the Greek word for the noun is "agapi".

and agapi translated into greek is αγάπη.

Agapi - transliterated

αγάπη - translated

correct?

We are talking about Ancient Greek here and the word transliterated is "esa'i" or "e'i" or "a'i".

I would be in favour of

Αιωνία αγάπη

(eternal love)

Kyla (which seems to have a number of meanings but people choose it because one of them is "lovely") is pronounced Κάιλα, which also happens to be a surname in Greek.
