[doo-tuh-ron-uh-mee, dyoo-]
Deuteronomy is derived from two Greek words, "deuteros" which means "second" and "nomos" meaning "law". ("Second Law" doesn't mean something different from the Law of Moses, but a second giving of that law.)
After the first generation of Israelites to flee Egypt died in the wilderness (Numbers 14:29), the law was repeated and expounded upon to the new generation before they entered the Promised Land. WikiAnswer
In Hebrew the book is called Devarim— דְּבָרִים, "[spoken] words". Wikipedia
