In the movie Inception (2010) what does “inception” actually mean? ?

Is it when they give someone an idea and they think it’s their own like they did with the son?

    Yes.  That's what it means.  In the film Leonardo DiCaprio's character Dom Cobb is an "extractor".  He uses technology to enter people's dreams and steal information (generally industrial espionage).  Inception is the opposite.  He goes in and tries to plant an idea in someone's head.  In the film they establish that it's a very difficult process that no one has been able to pull off before.  To do it they need to go very deep into someone's unconscious and plant the seed of a new idea.
