Dolce Origin and Meaning

The name Dolce is a girl's name meaning "sweet".

Dolce is the Italian word for "sweet," derived from the Latin word dulcis of the same meaning. It's a rare feminine first name in Italy, more often seen as a surname, as in that of Domenico Dolce, co-founder of fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. The luxury fashion brand has inspired a number of baby girls to be given the name since D&G's launch in 1985.

Historically, Dolce was a common girl name among the Italian Jewish community.
