I know that in France Dominique was often given to boys and girls born on Sunday. Now it's a tad outdated... There's a French word close to this name: "dominical": from Sunday, or happening on Sunday. For example "un repas dominical" = "a meal eaten on Sunday".
The French word for Sunday is "dimanche", or "jour du Seigneur" ("day of God, of the Lord").
