Is The Character's gender Definite?
I think Rowling did say that Victoire was "eldest daughter",which would confirm Dominique as female,as the only other child of that marriage has a definitely male name,but it should be remembered that "Dominique" in French is an epicene name (like "Robin" or "Leslie" in English).For example a top official in the Vatican Secretariat of State is Archbishop Dominique Mamberti.--Louis E./firstname.lastname@example.org/18.104.22.168 04:58, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
- I agree that we can't be absolutely certain that Dominique is a girl given that the name is unisex. But you're correct to point out that Rowling referred to Victoire as "Bill and Fleur's eldest daughter." If she'd only intended to convey Victoire's birth order, without implying that Victoire had a younger sister, she probably would've said "eldest child" instead. ★ Starstuff (Owl me!) 21:04, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
- Hi, I surfed in the internet because I remembered that I heard from JKR about the gender. Here is that what I found.
- Weasley, Dominique: One of the three children of Bill and Fleur Weasley, sister of Victoire and Louis [JKR/TLC Podcast]. I found it on this site:http://www.hp-encyclopedia.com/characters.php?page=charactersw Harry granger 10:21, June 26, 2010 (UTC)
- It should be noted that the HP Lexicon, which JK Rowling considers to be complete and accurate, states that Dominique is the "[m]iddle child of Bill and Fleur Weasly" and that the "name could belong to either a boy or a girl" (HPL). JK Rowling referring to Victoire as "Bill and Fleur's eldest daughter" is an argument for, but not proof of, Dominique being a girl (22.214.171.124 16:45, November 14, 2010 (UTC))
Wouldn't Gabrielle Delacour be her aunt? and if so shouldn't she be included in the family section? (for the record she is listed on Gabrielle's page as Gabrielle's niece) Also other characters have their grandparents listed why aren't hers?--UESPA 05:58, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
- So now we have Gabrielle but what about Apolline Delacour and Monsieur Delacour they are her grandparents.--UESPA 18:05, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
The Weasley family of course are purebloods but, the Delacors in HP Deathly Hallows is assumed to be purebloods.
Fleur’s parents can both be assumed to be wizards because they apparated to the burrow in DH. We know that Apolline Delacour helped Molly with housework, and therefore she is a wizard, but Fleur’s father could be a number of things, the first of which is a squib, from a wizard family (using side along apparition) which would still make Dominique a pureblood. He could also be a muggle that is accustomed to magic, although that seems very unlikely. The most likely one is that he is a wizard as well. So even if he was a muggle, that would still make Dominique a so called “Pureblood” because 3/4 of her grandparents are definitely wizards.

- Hello Bean. I approve of your theory, but at the end of your statement you noted that 'even if he was a muggle, that would still make Dominique a so called "Pureblood" because 3/4 of her grandparents are definitely wizards'; this, however, isn't strictly true. Even one muggle or muggle-born grandparent makes one automatically muggle-born. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 01:13, January 5, 2013 (UTC)
- @Hunnie Bunn. Sorry, I don't agree, a muggle or muggle-born grandparent makes the wizard a half-blood, not a muggle-born. 16:41, January 5, 2013 (UTC)
Wherefrom do we know that the middle name is Margent as mentioned in the article? Harry granger 18:43, September 2, 2011 (UTC)
Who would you ship Dominique with out of all the next generation kids??

The information about the gender of the name Dominique is missleading. The name isn't a female form. It's unisex and widely used for both, males and females. For example Dominique de Villepin and Dominique Strauss-Kahn are definitely male.
While I agree that our Dominique Weasley is probably female, it should probably be noted in the etymology section that the name can refer to a boy, too. Dyntia 09:15, June 17, 2012 (UTC)
