Deci- is the root of the number 10- as in decimal. The practice of decimation was killing one in every 10 persons in a group of people as punishment for the group. If a unit of soldiers should mutiny, and refuse to carry out orders, a military ruler might order the unit decimated. This was a severe punishment that left the unit still capable of functioning (killing all of them would not, for obvious reasons)

decimation was death by utter humiliation. soldiers that deserted or disobeyed an order then they would be decimated. The decimation was carried out by fellow soldiers. so you would be tied to a post and clubbed to death by men who you had fought together with, eaten together etc. but decimation could be different, general Scipio after he had defeated Hannibal caught the few soldiers that had deserted, tied them to the road and rode his elephants over them. so decimation was the ultimate humiliation to a soldier.

Loosely speaking, "decimation" is the process of reducing the sampling rate. In practice, this usually implies lowpass-filtering a signal, then throwing away some of its samples. "Downsampling" is a more specific term which refers to just the process of throwing away samples, without the lowpass filtering operation. Throughout this FAQ, though, we'll just use the term "decimation" loosely, sometimes to mean "downsampling".
In Latin decimation means removal of a tenth. It was a military collective punishment used by Roman officers in case of mutiny or desertion by the soldiers. It consisted in the execution of one tenth of the soldiers in a cohort (a Roman military unit). The men to be executed were drawn by lot. They were stoned or clubbed. The other soldiers were fed barley instead of wheat and had to sleep outside the fort for a few days.
