The surname Dominick was brought to England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from the Latin "Dominicus," meaning "of the Lord," a name that was borne by the famous Spanish saint who founded the Dominican Order. The name has always been a fairly uncommon one in England.

Dominick Early Origins



The surname Dominick was first found in 1405; Robert Domenyk was registered in the Calendar of Letter Books of London for that year. The name could be found infrequently in this region during the 15th and 16th centuries.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Pax
Motto Translation: Peace.
