Damian: baby boy name meaning and popularity

Damian

A Latinized version of the Greek name Damianos, meaning “to conquer or tame.” It used to be synonymous with the creepy, devilish kid in The Omen, but now — thankfully — it has lost that vibe and is on the up-and-up. Make sure your little Damian is well behaved so this trend will continue, mmkay?
