Dominic or Dominick?

What's the true, "traditional" way to spell this name?  Thanks in advance!

  • I prefer Dominic (it's our hypothetical boys name) but I was told by a few people that the black community pronounces that name Dom-i-neek whether it's spelled that way or Dominique, so that's why they put the K on the end. Dominique can be a males name as well. I grew up across the street from a Dominic who was called Dominique a lot. I've heard that from a few people in my area when we were thinking of names and I know quite a few Italian boys with the K.

    I don't want to start a race/cultural debate, this is just me relaying what I was told/experienced.

    lol!

    dominic for sure.

  • Usually I'm on board with the traditional spellings, but my brother's middle name is Dominick, after our great grandfather.

    There is also a grocery store chain in Chicago called Dominick's.

    This. Not sure why you would need both a "c" and a "k".

  • My father's name is Dominick. I have always felt that "Dominic" looks unfinished. I guess it is all in how you look at it.
