What are the two lines under your nose called?
I know that there is a name . I once knew the answer and now I can't think of it. My wife and I were talking the other day and the topic came up and I couldn't remember the name. thanks!

The space between the nose and mouth is called the philtrum (sometimes spelt philtrim). The central depression under your nose is called the philtral dimple, and the ridges are called philtral columns. The word is Greek in origin and means “magic potion”. An old wives’ tale has it that the philtrum is a mark left by an angel’s finger at the moment of a baby’s birthSource(s): Google search (some forum post)
