The name Domme 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. Domme is a nickname surname, a style of name based on an eke-name, or added name, that described a characteristic of its original bearer. Domme is a name for a person who was innocent or naive having derived from the German word "dommer" which means the same.

The Great Migration



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 Domme, or one of its variants, reaching North America shores very early:
