Comments for the name Decima

Comments for DECIMA:

This would be pronounced "DESS-im-uh". Personally it's too close to the word decimate for me. When Romans decimated the enemy, they lined them up and counted each one up to 10, and then whoever was 10 had their head chopped off and the count started again.
