Last 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.
