Where is the emphasis in this name? Is it DEC-ima, or De-CIMA?

Other ways you could use Decima while keeping to the "tenth" meaning:
- Being born in October (tenth month)
- Being born in December (same etymological root)
- Tenth grandchild to her grandparents
- Being born on the tenth of a month
Or you could just disregard the meaning altogether...
