Short form of DOMINIQUE. It was used by author Ian Fleming in his James Bond novel 'Thunderball' (1961), where the nickname belongs to Bond's Italian love interest DOMINETTA "Domino" Vitali (renamed Dominique "Domino" and simply Domino in the 1965 and 1983 film adaptations, respectively). A known bearer was English bounty hunter Domino Harvey (1969-2005), whose mother named her for the French model Dominique "Domino" Sanda (1951-).
