My personal impression of this name is not very good because I have found that it is against the law to name your kid that in some countries.

Monica in Latin means cheerful and pretty. It is an EXCELLENT NAME and not illegal in other countries. Those are stories made up, by someone who has no life. It is a beautiful name and means exactly what it is.

Too bad one of the most famous people with this name is Monica Lewinsky of Bill Clinton fame. It really is a pretty name deserving of better.

I think the Monica Gellar character from Friends has captured the image of this name. It's pretty and sophisticated, I like it.

I've known 3 Monicas. One was a ho in high school, one was a loud, obnoxious, know-it-all at work, and one was a nosey neighbor. This name always leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth. I just hope I either meet a good one or never meet another.

This is my name and I absolutely LOVE IT! I pronounce it exactly as it is spelled. I also think that the reason why a lot of you dont like this name is because of Monica Lewinsky. Well there are a lot of people in this world and I'm sure someone with the same name as you has ruined its reputation too. So please think before you type.

From all the Monicas I know, I think they are very friendly, kind, intelligent and have a warm personality. Am so gratefull for this name, I LOVE it and I deserve it coz that's what I am.

I had a Greek TA tell me once that this name meant "single" or "lonely." I think that's plausible, with the Greek prefix "mono-" prefixing so many other words. (ex: monosyballic, monotone, mononucleosis, etc.)

I love the name Monica, It has always amazed me how some people dislike the name because of Monica Lewinsky. It seems people forgot all about the OLDER, SUPPOSED to be WISER man. Who pulled his pants down and cheated on not only his wife but family, and country and started our young people down the road to thinking oral sex is not sex. Please give me a break! Monica Lewinsky was just a young girl who got caught up in ONE OF BILL CLINTON'S LUSTFUL AFFAIRS!

This name is really ugly!

Monica is an alright name but was given to too many people who were born between 1959-1969. Really, I've known over seven Monica's and they've all been born in those ten years.
Also, a lot of names are illegal in other countries. For example, Samantha was illegal in Argentina for a very long time. There is nothing wrong with the name, some goverments would just waste time worrying about what their citizens are naming their children instead of more important things.

I rather like this name. It's my name. I've met about one other person with it (spelt Moniqa though), which makes me feel like it's unique. People with a certain reputation should not be able make a change to a name. Someone with the most horrible personality may have the most beautiful name, or someone with the greatest personality may have a rather bland and common name. All in all, I love my name.

The full name Monica seems a little more on the glamorous side, but one can shorten it to Mon or Moni.

In Italy Monica was popular in the 1960s and 1970s. It was the 5th most popular name in Rome in 1971 (behind Barbara, Simona, Francesca and Laura). It's much less popular today.

The Italian pronunciation is MOH-nee-kah.

I really don't like this name. Not very feminine and sounds harsh. Some names just trigger interest in the person carrying them or simply make me associate them with positive attributes. I associate Monica with something rather simple and ordinary.
-- Anonymous User  4/9/2009
I LOVE this name! It's so beautiful and elegant, and it has a nice ring to it.
-- -Julia-  8/23/2009
I like this name, but it has a number of annoying namesakes, like the character on Friends and the hideous Monica Lewinsky.
-- bananarama  9/8/2009
I think Monica is a beautiful name it makes me think of a warm and friendly person.
-- iceskater735  10/28/2009
I don't really like the way the name sounds. And it's my name. For some reason, when I was younger, I associated the name with squash, which I hated at the time. I'm ok with it as my name now, but sometimes I wish I was given a different, less-known but still good, name.
-- YourAchillesHeel  11/29/2009
Gorgeous and simple.

Monica Padilla appeared on Survivor: Samoa and also won several awards such as The Sexiest Reality Show Female within the last 2 years.
-- sddorme  2/22/2010
I like it a lot, because of its versatility. Along with Cecilia and Claudia, it's one of those classy, international names, that's used in a lot of cultures and pronounced beautifully in all of them. Though I prefer this name pronounced MO-nee-ka, with a proper "o", not "aw" or anything. I think Monica can fit any sort of girl, from punk rocker chicks, to quiet, wall-flower types and to Gothic Lolitas.
-- Ailis  2/23/2010
Formally early Latin the name Monica means Leader. VERY headstrong and calm, nice but strict and has common morals.
-- theone1  5/2/2010
It's such a pretty and simple name. Not overused either which is great.
-- Chrila96  12/11/2010
English pronunciation is also "maw-NEE-kah".

Many other sites say it's Latin for advisor.

"... it's one of those classy, international names, that's used in a lot of cultures and pronounced beautifully in all of them."

I agree 100%. I think this name is lovely. Not common, sophisticated and pretty universal but not super common anywhere.
