    There is no such word as "Indominus" though. There is the word "dominus" which means "master" in Latin, but as a noun.
    e.g. dominus servum salutat = "The master greets the slave."
    If you want to say "master" as an adjective, then you're looking for "domitus," and thus its antonym, "indomitus," which is where English gets the word "indomitable" from (e.g. "the indomitable Gauls").
    e.g. deo adjuvante indomitus = "We are unconquerable with God's help."

    Paulbot's explanation (spoiler tagged in his post) does offer a plausible in-story reason (which I wasn't initially aware of). Indominus Transformiaunobtainium!
    What about the Megaladon?

    Megaladon is Greek for "Big Dragon".

    Also, there's Megalacockus. Greek for "Big Foot".

    MegalaBigMac is Greek for "Big Waistline"

    Has anyone sighted the Jurassic World Barbie of the redhead Claire? Asking for a 'friend'
    On the lookout for MISB Headmaster Highbrow, Takara or Hasbro. I'm sure I could make you a sweet deal!

    The Fallen Kingdom ones are made by Mattel. World toys were by Hasbro. So definately better.

    Recently picked up the Concavenator. It’s a unique looking dinosaur with a hump on its back. The play features ,it has a swinging tail, and a articulated jaw. I love all the unique dinosaurs for this line.
