Monica Family History
Monica Name Meaning
Spanish and Italian (Mónica): from the female personal name Mónica from Monica the name of the mother of Saint 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.
