The dynasty was named after Domagoj, the first member of dynasty known by name. The most famous of the Domagojević's are: Domagoj (the founder) and Branimir.

The relation between Domagoj and Branimir is controversial. Some historians think that Branimir was a son of Domagoj, some think they were in some other family relation. Others think that there were no family relations between them.
