You need a certificate for *.secure.xyz.com or specifically for name.secure.xyz.com.

As Ronin stated, you will either need a wildcard certificate for *.secure.xyz.com to cover any possible host names in that domain, or a single SSL certificate for secure.xyz.com.

If this is not for an eCommerce site, you can probably get by with a free Let's Encrypt certificate.  Check out their home page: https://letsencrypt.org/

Yes
or I need to use a wild card?
No, but it will also work for this and future sub domains. If you do go for wildcard, you can use it on xyz.com too.
