Reminds me of the Rugrats, although this name is starting to grow on me. It's quite cute.

I have loved Angelica since I was a child and it is still on my list of names for a possible future daughter.

I love its soft sound, the immediate meaning (at least in Italian) and the fact that it is also a plant.

I like this name a lot and contrary to what has been commented below, the association that is implied by some to remind them of an animated character from so long ago is just silly. I think this name is quite lovely and I have met many bearers of this name who have done a great service to it. Angelica is very easy to say and it does have a sweet sound, at least from my point of view, that I would recommend it for anyone that sees it from a similar stand point as I do. In closing, it is not the name itself that offers either a negative or positive association, but the person
behind the name that does.

I hate the name Angelica so much. It reminds me of an annoying bossy little girl. Angelica is like another name for angel which makes that person named Angelica think highly of themselves just because they're part "angel" or whatever. And it just reminds me of the Rugrats character Angelica which is a very bratty little girl.

Well, it means "Angel-like" which makes sense. Much like Angel, the vampire from the hit 90s TV show Buffy the vampire Slayer, I too wear dark colors, stay up all night, hate socializing, and have a kind of scary dark side that I bury deep down and only comes out when I'm at my happiest.

This is one of the prettiest names I know. It's not overly popular either- I've never met one, but it's well-known enough to be usable.

Angelica Schuyler Church, sister-in-law of Alexander Hamilton and daughter of the wealthy senator and war veteran Philip Schuyler. She is gaining in popularity because of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway musical, "Hamilton," which is very popular. Renée Elise Goldsberry originated Angelica's role in the musical.

This was the name of Alexander Hamilton's (one of the USA's Founding Fathers) sister-in-law. She is a prominent character in the musical "Hamilton", and it's implied that they are having an affair, at least emotionally. Since the musical is very popular and it's a beautiful name, Angelica may come into more popularity soon.

I honestly don't like this name too much, I'm really not sure why. But it is still very pretty and has a nice ring to it and seems fun. I also really love all of the nickname possibilities. 'Jelly' is so cool! I kind of wish I knew someone with this name, even though it is not a favorite.

It's a shame that this name was ruined for so many people by "Rugrats." I mean, I am INFATUATED with that cartoon, but I do recommend using this name one day because that factor contributes to the name's rarity. It's beautiful, feminine, and somewhat even enchanted, so use this. You can always nickname a little girl Angie if you don't want people teasing her because of the Rugrats connection.

My godmother was named Angelica, but I never knew that until after she had passed away (everybody called her by a nickname that became her given name and had no relation to her first name). Her mother saw the name in a book and thought it was so beautiful, however, she wasn't aware of the usual pronunciation. And so, my godmother's name was pronounced "an-JEL-ICE-ə". Strangely enough, I feel that this softens out a somewhat harsh sounding name.

Derives from Greek word ΑΓΓΕΛΟΣ = ANGEL > ΑΓΓΕΛΙΚΟΣ (=angelic)
ΑΓΓΕΛΙΚΗ = ANGELICA = the feminine version of angelic.
Other words common in everyday contemporary Greek:
ΑΓΓΕΛΩ= to announce, ΑΓΓΕΛΙΑ = message, announcement.

In the spectacular 2011 film "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," Angelica, portrayed by the talented Penélope Cruz-- is Jack Sparrow's (played by Johnny Depp) former love interest. Having met Jack just before she was to take a vow of celibacy in a Spanish convent, Angelica blames Jack for her corruption and becoming a pirate. There is claim stated by herself that she is Blackbeard's lost daughter, and finally First Mate of the Queen Anne's Revenge.

True to its roots in the Greek for 'messenger', the herb Angelica symbolizes inspiration and the Muse in the language of flowers. Victorian poets would adorn their heads with crowns of Angelica, whose heady fragrance was reputed to bring about visions.

I adore this name. There's so many nicknames for it though I don't know why you would want to use one with a beautiful name like that. My little cousin's name is Angelica & we call her Jelly. We have two Angela's in the family. One goes by Angel & the other Angie so my aunt nicknamed her Jelly.

I love the way it sounds and the way it's spelled. I've only met one Angelica ever. It's definitely a name that you don't hear a lot. But due to the fact that I used to watch Rugrats and hated that bratty girl with this name with a passion I can't name my child this. But hey if you like the name, go for it.

I named my first born Angelica. The only name that came to me was Angel. Her father said all the Angels he knew were dancers. So, I named her Angelica. She is as lovely as her name. He calls her Angel anyway. Her father is Italian and I'm of Polish decent.

Angelica is my name and I absolutely love it. I like having a name that can be pronounced in both English and Spanish. If this wasn't my name I would want to give it to my daughter (when I have one), but I don't like it when a mom gives her name to her daughter. I think it's a strong name that is reflected in my maturity and sense of responsibility.

I love the name Angelica because that is my name. I'm 13, and my whole life I've been teased. People say I'm from the Rugrats. My ex-boyfriend told his younger sister that I was the Angelica off of the cartoon, and she was asking me if she could come over and play with Tommy and Chuckie. It was so funny.
