FOR REAL: This name was brought to us by St. Monica of Hippo, the patron saint of battered women and mother of St. Augustine. St. Monica was from North Africa, and her name is likely of that or Phonecian origin. We don't know the true meaning, but since the Middle Ages, Monica has been associated with the Latin moneo meaning "advisor" and the Greek mono meaning "one."
