Meaning of the baby name DUMNONOS.

  

DUMNONOS.  "Son of Dumno."  The Genitive form of Celtic Dumno ("world"), the god of the Dobuni.

... In Ireland, again, their (novæ gentes) name appears in that of the Fir-Domnann, or men of (the divinity) Domnu.  "Put this word Domnu," says Professor Rhys, "back into what must have been its early form, and you will have a nominative Dumnu and a genitive Dumnonos, implying a stem Dumnon.  Form from the latter an adjective Dumonios: you will then have as its plural Dumnonii, the attested name of the two peoples of Roman Britain, situated respectively by the Severne Sea and the First of Forth. (The Age of Saints, Borlase, 1893)
