Derived from Gothic dôms (which is cognate with Old High German tuom) meaning "judgement" combined with Gothic hardus (hart in Old High German) meaning "brave, hardy".This name was borne by an obscure 6th-century Frankish saint, who was one of the disciples of the Frankish missionary and saint Marculf (better known under the French names Marcou, Marcouf and Marcoul). He died either on the same day as Marculf did, or several days afterwards. As a result, they were buried together (along with an other disciple of Marculf's) in the same tomb in the abbey of Nanteuil, which was located in the diocese of Coutances in the Cotentin Peninsula of Normandy.
