Where did the German Dome family come from? What is the German Dome family crest and coat of arms? When did the Dome family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Dome family history?

The name Dome comes from the German province known as the Rhineland. In pre-medieval times, the German people used only one name, but as the population increased, hereditary surnames became necessary for people to maintain unique identities. Dome is a nickname surname, a style of name based on an eke-name, or added name, that described a characteristic of its original bearer. Dome is a name for a person who was innocent or naive having derived from the German word "dommer" which means the same.

One can encounter great variation in the spelling of surnames: in early times, spelling in general, and thus the spelling of names was not yet standardized; and later, spellings would change with branching and movement of families. Variations of the name Dome include Dommer, Domer, Dommar, Dommers, Dummar, Dumme, Dummer, Doemer, Domme and many more.

First found in the Rhine region, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.

Hundreds of thousands of Europeans, including many Rhinelanders, made the voyage to North America between the 17th and 20th centuries. It was an escape from religious persecution and poverty and also an opportunity for people to start over and own their own land. Most landed at Ellis Island, off New York before moving on to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, and California. Some also landed in Canada and settled in Ontario, while others headed west to the prairie provinces. A study of passenger and immigration lists has shown a number of people bearing the name of Dome, or one of its variants, reaching North America shores very early:
