Dominick Name Meaning

English: from a vernacular form of the Late Latin personal name Dominicus ‘of the Lord’. This was borne by a Spanish saint (1170–1221) who founded the Dominican order of friars. In medieval England it may have been used as a personal name for a child born on a Sunday. As an English surname it is comparatively rare, and in the U.S. it has undoubtedly absorbed cognates in other European languages; for the forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988.
