108 Dominican Republic Baby Names With Meanings

The naming custom of the Dominican Republic, a Spanish-speaking sovereign state in the Caribbean, is similar to the customs practiced in Spain. Not just the customs, even the first names are largely Spanish.

In the Dominican Republic, both men and women carry two family names, first is the father’s family name and the second is the mother’s family name. Both the family names are equally important and are compulsory for all official documents. Married women are not required to change their family’s name to their husband’s surname. Even when the women are shifted to the other countries, they can keep their maiden name.

In the colonial period, the Hispanics all over the world, including the Dominican Republic had a second name with a ‘de’ between first and third given names. For instance, Saint Teresa de Los Andes. While the custom has faded significantly in other Hispanic countries, people of Dominican Republic still follows it. But this second given name is used in formal occasions or is registered only in birth, marriage, and death certificates.
