early 15c., from Middle French domestique (14c.) and directly from Latin domesticus “belonging to the household,” from domus “house,” from PIE *domo-/*domu- “house, household” (cf. Sanskrit damah “house;” Avestan demana- “house;” Greek domos “house,” despotes “master, lord;” Latin dominus “master of a household;” Old Church Slavonic domu, Russian dom “house;” Lithuanian dimstis “enclosed court, property;” Old English timber “building, structure”), from *dem-/*dom- “build.”

It represents the usual Indo-European word for “house” (Italian, Spanish casa are from Latin casa “cottage, hut;” Germanic *hus is of obscure origin). The noun meaning “household servant” is 1530s (a sense also found in Old French domestique). Domestics, originally “articles of home manufacture,” is attested from 1620s. Related: Domestically. Domestic violence is attested from 19c. as “revolution and insurrection;” 1977 as “spouse abuse, violence in the home.”
