"YAY!I adore my name. I really think that it fits my personality perfectly. I feel as though I am quite an advisor. All of my friends come to me for advice and I love how I rarely run into other people with my name. I feel as though it sounds like an ethnic name, especially when it's pronounced with an accent. Also, I used to hate that all of my friends would call me Mon or Mo for short, but now I really don't mind. It's now a term of indearment. I could not imagine myself with another name.
Keep rockin' Mon's of the world!!! =D" Sep. 4, 2008:

"My name is Monica and I love the fact that it has its roots in Latin, because I am a Latin teacher and I always mention it when I teach the verb "moneo", which means to warn or advise. But the Lewinsky thing was definitely a problem. Someone even said I looked like her because we happen to have the same name and the same coloring. I did NOT take it as a compliment. :(" Mar. 22, 2015:
