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?
