What does Animo mean?

Animo is a word of Latin origin referring to a mental, spiritual, and emotional state of focused energy, strong spirit, positive mood, desire, interest, clear intention, soul, and purpose. It is used in Portuguese, Spanish, Catalan, and Italian to encourage, embolden, empower, endow with spirit and temperament; to animate, make alive, and fill with breath. The meaning is made clearer through Latin phrases such as aequo animo (with an even mind, calmly, patiently, with composure), ex animo (from the heart), uno animo (with one mind).
