Dominador Rosauro Aytona (23 May 1918 – 26 September 2017) was a Filipino politician and lawyer.

Aytona was a native of Libon, Albay, born to Jose Ataviado Aytona and Vivencia Cerdon Rosauro. He attended the Albay Training Department and the Albay Normal School and worked as a teacher before earning a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Manila in 1947. He earned an LL.B and LL.M from UM in 1949 and 1951 respectively. Aytona began working for the Senate of the Philippines as a financial adviser in 1950. In 1954, he became Commissioner of the Budget under president Ramon Magsaysay. Magsaysay's successor Carlos P.
