Monica Name Meaning

Italian: from a feminine form of Monico. Spanish Mónica: from the female personal name Monica, the name of the mother of St. Augustine. She was a Carthaginian, so the name may well be of Phoenician origin. However, in the early Middle Ages, it was taken to be a derivative of Latin monere ‘to warn or advise’, and was associated with the spiritual guidance that she gave to her famous son.
