Dominic Name Meaning

The character of Dominic is complex, very independent, she has a strong will that she tries to subdue people, sometimes she shows excessive rigidity and prudence. It is interesting that in childhood it cannot be suspected that Dominic was such an iron woman, because she is always calm, quiet, obedient, although sometimes stubborn. The difficulties with Dominic begin in adolescence, when her character acquires courage, tactility, skepticism, and impatience with people. It is often very difficult for parents to get along with their daughters in such a period, because the girl is completely beyond her control, while trying to build a life on her own, she often acts impulsively and finds many problems. It is difficult for Dominic to read at any age, but at the same time he has a lively mind and can realize his ideas and desires thanks to his energy. The owner of this name, as a rule, is very amorous, but it is difficult to build relationships, because he cannot live without disagreements, conflicts, loves to contradict and likes to say "no". He has few friends, most of them are psychologically repressing, so his friends try to communicate with him rarely and at a distance.

Love and family relationships

 In family life, Dominic shows herself as an incomparable hostess: she cooks well, loves to take care of the house, is very loyal to the interests of the family. But getting along with her is not easy, so it is better for her to choose a man with a very strong spirit as her life partner.

professional field

Along with Benjamin, Dominic was extremely popular in the early nineties (before Joshua and Jack came into fashion)so there are probably a lot of young boys and teenagers with this name. I don't like it much, to me It'sounds girly.

i've been a Dominic since 1983. My mom's side of the family calls me Nick or Dominic and my dad's side of the family calls me Dom or Dominic. My nieces and nephe's call me Uncle Nick because it is easier to pronounce. People will pronounce my name Dominique and more often'times than not, it is someone from a different ethnic background than my own.

Our son is named Dominic. The movie, The Fast and The Furious (Vin Diesel's character-Dom) helped us with the name'selection, since we are not of Italian heritage. We love the name'since It's not as common any more.

I also have an 18 month old son named Dominic. My husband and I picked out the name years ago when we first talked about having children. We love that It's a strong name and we also love the meaning "Belonging to the Lord". It fits my son perfectly as his birth was a huge surprise - he was unexpectedly born at home a month early! So he is truly our gift and thank goodness he arrived without complications. He has also been called Dominique and people have spelled it that way which has totally puzzled me. We only call him "Dominic" though. I have never been a big fan of shortening names as I have a name that people constantly try to shorten much to my dI'may. We do have nicknames for him like "Rascal". My daughter likes to call him "Dominicky". I will raise him Dominic and if he wants to go by "Dom" that will be his choice to make. I think It's a great name and I'm glad we chose it.
