First person first name

Hello,
I'm trying to find the first person who was named "Domenic". Can anyone help me where/how I could start this research? I have tried Google but it wasn't too helpful :S

Re: First person first name

It's the origin of the name you're looking for, I assume.
I would suggest Dominic was named after a Saint, and the one that seems to at the head of the queue, so to speak is Santo Domingo de Silos) (1000 – December 20, 1073) was a Spanish monk, to whom the Abbey of Santo Domingo de Silos, where he served as the abbot, is dedicated. He is revered as a saint in the Catholic Church. His feast day is December 20.

From the Late Latin name Dominicus meaning "of the Lord". This name was traditionally given to a child born on Sunday.
