Will baby be born on Sunday? When male babies were born on a Sunday in medieval times, they were often called Dominic, which in Latin is Dominicus and means “lord.” Further propelling mostly Roman Catholic parents toward the name was its association with several saints, including a Spanish priest, St. Dominic, who founded the Dominican order of friars in the 13th century. Two contemporary name bearers: “Prison Break” actor Dominic Purcell and Dominic West of “The Affair.”
