Deuteronomy literally means "things" or "words".

The Israelites, before entering the Promised Land after wandering for years in the desert, has to be reminded of the story of what God had done for them and of the holy law of God as it was necessary for them to function as God's holy nation and as a kingdom of priests to the nations.
