Nice friend of mine, I love that name!
-- Merenwen  10/11/2005
This is the name of near everyone in my Sicilian family, so I agree with the Italian thing. Only one relative actually born in America has this name.

I HATED this name until I read "Dark Waters" in which Dominic is an adorable, hyper little boy. That totally changed my opinion for some reason, and now it's a favorite!

This name has really grown on me, it was the nice meaning of this name that got me to rethink this name.

Domenic is also a variant.

Dominic is my cousin's name and it's very unique.

I named my first son Dominic. I thought I would call him Nic, but Dominic suits him more. He is gifted and kind and a very strong, handsome young man. It is a great name!

Mmm, an impressive list, and another dishy Dominic who's just emerged is one member of new modern classical quartet Blake - Dominic Tighe. For a funny man, comedian Dom Jollie's pretty cute too.

I like how you can use either DOM or NIC/NICKY as nicknames (I personally prefer Dom).
-- KillYourEgo  1/2/2009
I just love the name Dominic! It probably has something to do with Muse. But I just love the nickname Dom, it's sort of uncommon (I only "know" one Dominic), and it's just one of my favorite boys names.

Love this name. It's cute and the diminutive "Dom" is great.
-- slyboots  1/9/2011
I'm not a fan of the nickname Dom, but I find Dominic a very handsome name. And luckily (hopefully) no girls will adopt it in the future because there's always Dominique for them. Hopefully...
-- Book_Reader22  4/7/2011
My name is Dominique and I also get called Dom as a nickname, but always hate it when I run into a mate called Dominic and everyone is calling out Dom, Dom, and I get all confused.
-- Anonymous User  10/23/2011
I hate this name. It sounds like an evil name; I don't care what it means. It always makes me think of the devil.

Dominic Kay (b. 1996 in Los Angeles, California) is an American actor.

My brother, born in 1980, is named Dominic. It wasn't a very common name when he was born and he's received a lot of compliments on it. He's usually called Dom by family and friends, but goes by Dominic at work. He went through a phase in junior high where he tried to go by Nic, but it never really caught on. His two year old son is Dominic, Jr., and he is usually called Dominic but my sons have started to call him Nicky, which I think is adorable :)

Actor, Mario Lopez and his wife just had a baby boy and they named him Dominic but will be called "Nico". The baby is named after his wife's Italian grandfather whom I'm asssuming was Domenico in his native country. That's probably where the Nico nickname came from.
-- Bajafresh  9/13/2013
I find this "of the lord" thing hilarious because my Dominic isn't big on religion and I'm a pagan. I didn't even know this. Now I have to be helpful lest they take off my comment. So this is a good name. It has a bunch of nicknames (like my Dominic goes by Dom) so it gives the bearer a lot of wiggle room.
-- jossskinner  4/14/2014
All of the Dominics I've met as a teacher have been naughty boys. I cringed when my sister in law considered the name for her second son. She asked me if it sounded like a naughty name. I was honest and said yes. She named him Dominic anyway...

He's only 2 so we'll have to see how he is when he's older, but I still think it sounds sassy.
-- swallow1989  8/22/2014
Dominic is one of my favorite names for a boy. I haven't met many Dominics in my life, maybe one or two, but the one who was my age spelled his name Dominick, which (to me) looks like his parents tried to be edgy. Also, going off of the comment above mine, the Dominick I knew in school was the class clown, so I think the way his name was spelled fit his personality.

It's interesting that someone farther up described Dominic as a very Italian name, because the few Dominics I've known (including the aforementioned class clown) were all Italian-Americans... as am I, so if I were to use Dominic for my son it wouldn't seem out of place.

My younger brother is named Dominic, and my mother opted to call him Nick instead of Dom because she thought Dom sounded too much like "dumb" and that he'd get teased. A few of his friends occasionally call him Dom, but the family still prefers Nick.

Also, people tend to misspell or mispronounce his name as Dominique for some reason. Teachers, coworkers, my mother's sister who spelled it wrong for ten years...the list goes on. It happens a lot, and it's often really hard to set people straight once they've decided on the wrong name. It happens the other way around with my friend named Dominique, and it's equally as annoying to her. I don't know why so many people have had trouble with this name, but I figure people deserve a little bit of warning about it.
