How Popular Is The Name Domingo

Family name origins & meanings

  • Spanish : from a personal name (Latin Dominicus meaning ‘of the Lord’, from 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, already well established because of its symbolic value.
  • The surname Domingo is found in Quebec city by 1681, brought from Bayonne in France. Bearers of this name are also called Carabi, implying a connection with the former Spanish colony of Santo Domingo (now the Dominican Republic) in the Caribbean.
