Duce Name Meaning
English: nickname from Middle English douce, dowce ‘sweet’, ‘pleasant’ (Old French dolz, dous, from Latin dulcis). This was also in occasional use as a female personal name in the Middle Ages, and some examples may derive from it. Italian: from duce ‘leader’, ‘chief’, probably applied as a nickname.
