The Domino surname is derived from the Latin given name "Damianus," which in turn comes from the name of a Greek goddess, Damia. There was an early Christian saint named Damian, martyred in Cilicia in the year 303, under emperor Domitian. There was also a St. Damian, who lived in the 7th-8th centuries recorded as the Bishop of Pavia. These two saints, no doubt have contributed the popularity of this name.

Domino Early Origins



The surname Domino was first found in Piedmont (Italian: Piemonte, Piedmontese and Occitan: Piemont), a territorial division of northern Italy at the foot of the Alps consisting of the provinces of Alessandria, Cuneo, Novara and Turin. Saint Peter Damian "Pietro Damiani," in Italian (circa 1007-1072) was an Italian religious reformer, who was a Camaldolese monk at Fonte-Avellino (near Gubbio).
