Damien

tame, subdue
ORIGIN: Greek
POPULARITY: 518
The French didn’t tinker too much with this name—just a quick spelling change from the original English Damian. Both are derived from the Greek “Damianos,” which came from the word “daman” (“tame, subdue”). While Damian is the more favored spelling with American parents, Damien is still a fixture on the name charts and has been since the late 1960s. Its most famous namesake is St. Damien, a Catholic priest who selflessly performed his priestly duties while living in a leper colony in Molokai, Hawaii, in the late 19th century.
