I can tell people in the US my name is Monika (long O) and most will still call me Monica. Drives me crazy.
I've traveled all over the world, and the only country that pronounces it "Monica" is the US... To me it sounds whiny. I prefer the original pronunciation Monika.

This variation for the English version of “Monica” has a special appearance to it that harkens back to something entirely different yet nicely familiar. Monika definitely appeals to me as it offers a wonderful spelling alternative to the already tried and true, “Monica”. I would definitely take this name into consideration when selecting a name for a future daughter of mine. :)

There were two Monikas at 2015's Eurovision. Monika Linkyte is a Lithuanian singer who represented her country with Vaidas Baumila with the song "This Time" while Monika Kuszynska is a Polish singer who represented her country with the song "In The Name Of Love". Both qualified from their semi finals however they did not crack the Top 10.

I like this spelling more. It adds fresh spunk to Monica. And it's not a "kreative" spelling, it's a variant.

I'd really hate to say this, but I could never use the name "Monika," because of Doki Doki Literature Club. It's a great game, but I couldn't have a kid named Monika without the words "F***ing Monikammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm" or "Just Monika" popping into my head.

And I certainly don't want that.

I like this name, it suits a graceful and lovely girl. It reminds me of Monika from Doki Doki Literature Club, and of Monika from Mad Father.

I like Monica, but not necessarily Monika. Monika just looks a bit too kre8tiv for me (Although if I had to use it, it does have history so it wouldn’t be too bad). Not only that, it reminds me of Monika from Doki Doki Literature Club, not a positive association, at least for a child.

"Summer with Monika" is a 1953 film by Ingmar Bergman. It sparked controversy abroad for its frank depiction of nudity, and it helped start the reputation of Sweden as a sexually liberated place. The film is about two young working-class people who spend an idyllic summer on a boat, with life-changing consequences. The role of Monika was played by Harriet Andersson (b 1932).

The film inspired a poem of the same name by Merseybeat poet Roger McGough, published in 1967.

"for I locked a yellowdoor
And I threw away the key
And I spent summer with Monika
And Monika spent summer with me".

I like this name spelled better with a "c". It sounds less harsh and more delicate and elegant. My name is spelled with a "c" and people always spell it with a "k". It drives me insane!
