So does the same meaning for Dom apply to the MS-09? I've always thought Dom
was short for "Domination" personally.

dam = protective barrier

gun = uhm...gun

dom = to protect (in JP or read somewhere that dom means that)

At first Tomino was going to name Gundam; Gunboy...but then that sounded
too kiddish and he wanted something more mature. Hence...Gundom...but then
I forget why he changed from Gundom to Gundam. :|
