Anyways 7/10 for my name since the nicknames are slacking :(. BUT no one else at my school has my name so that's cool.
Contrary to popular belief, I find this name completely unisex leaning more towards masculine. It reminds me a lot of Dominic. The meaning is cool and either way the name in general is cool too. I know a male Dominique who goes by “Dom” for short. Apparently it’s more popular for boys in France anyways so I guess it’s not too feminine.
With 929 326 bearers, Dominique is the 5th most common name in France (2014 Data).
