Dominic basically is a common first name, translated from Latin in which it means "of God'. Many saints have had this name. For instance Saint Dominic, Dominic of Osma, also known as Dominic de Guzman, was the creator of the Friars Preachers, famously known as Dominicans and Order of Preachers which is a Christian religious category.

Dominic is even the supporter saint of astronomers and the Dominican Republic. Dominic had taken birth in Caleruega, in between Osman and Aranda in Old Castile, Spain. He got his name after Saint Dominic of Silos, who is the Patron saint of the Benedictine Abbey of Santo Domingo de Silos, which is positioned a few miles north of Caleruega.

Saint Dominic was born in the year 1170 and expired on August 4th, 1221.
