This name personally has positive associations for me. I went to high school with a girl named Dominique and she remains the single most stunningly beautiful person I have ever seen in person. I was too shy to ever talk to her, but she seemed like a sweet person also.

Seems to be a genuinely unisex name. I would prefer it for a girl, but it's gorgeous either way.

There is nothing feminine about this name because it sounds very masculine.

Hate this name. It's so rough sounding especially on a girl. This name would suit a dyke though.

I've ALWAYS assumed that Dominique was the feminine version of Dominic. Whoa. But anyways, I grew up with Dominique being a girl's name so I definitely prefer it for that gender. I don't care for Dominique on a male. I much prefer Dominic.

The only Dominique I've ever known was a girl. Anyway, I think this name is girly, maybe it's a little biased but I could only think of a girl having this name. I think Dominic should be the boy alternative for this name because it's just too feminine for a boy.

Despite the -ique that makes it look like Veronique, I think it's a pretty masculine name. I think it sounds weird on girls, just because the 'Domi' sound is very strong and masculine. Reminds me immediately of 'dominus', 'lord' in Latin.

I like this name for boys because it's masculine but very cute. Goes well with a child and most of the adults too. And the stress on the last syllable makes it absolutely more gorgeous than Dominic!

I live in an English-speaking country and had no idea that this could be a male name until I came on this site. I have only ever heard it used on females. It's rather charming, but not top on my list.

This name is really dated to the 1950's/1960's for both boys and girls in France. There are currently more males living in France with the name Dominique than females.

I've only met two Dominiques, both guys. Neither were / are in the slightest bit feminine. Love this name for a boy, find it horrid for a girl.

I love this name! It's so unique and pretty. I see this more on a girl than a boy, but it's a very common for both girls and boys in France. An adorable nickname for Dominique is Domi.

Although I've known boys named Dominique, I think this is strictly a feminine name. And I think it is beautiful, except that I cannot get past that horrible ANTM association. I'm glad I don't watch that show anymore, all it does is ruin pretty names.

The "que" makes it look very feminine, like in Monique or Angelique. I would personally not name a boy with this.

I always thought that this was a girl's name, though I did meet a male Dominique once. I guess it sounds good for either gender, though I find Dominic better for boys.

I agree - this name should be girls only! Boys should stick to Dominic. I think this name flows well, and isn't too common, which is a good thing.

I think Dominique is a feminine name, it should really only be given to girls. (And I'm not just saying that cause it just happens to be my name. Honest!)

I think it is weird for a boy to have this name (although the only Dominique I've met was a boy), but it's a very pretty name for a girl. It's better than names like Monique and Veronique.

If you read 'Devil's Cub' by Georgette Heyer the lead guy's name is Dominique. He makes the name very masculine and devious.
