Dominick Family History

Dominick Surname Meaning

English and German: from a vernacular form of the Late Latin personal name Dominicus from Latin dominicus ‘of the Lord’ an adjectival derivative of dominus ‘lord master’. This was borne by a Spanish saint (1170–1221) who founded the Dominican order of friars and whose fame added greatly to the popularity of the name (Domingo in Spanish) already established because of its symbolic value. In medieval England it may have been used as a personal name for a child born on a Sunday though as an English surname it is comparatively rare. In North America the English form of the surname has absorbed cognates from other languages especially Italian Domenico (see also 2 below). See also Domingo compare Dominic . Americanized form of German Polish Czech Slovak Slovenian and Croatian Dominik and of Croatian Dominić (see Dominic ).
