Domenica hasn't been a top 1,000 baby name in the United States since the early 1920s, but we could easily see it making a comeback. It sounds international and exotic without being too out there, and it feels like a fresh take on names that have become a bit outdated, like Dominique. It has a nice meaning that appeals to everyone from hipsters to people of faith. We like the way it sounds with a shorter one and two-syllable middle names.
