Possibly derived from the Latin word, "moneo," but it's most likely of unknown North African or Phoenician origin. Inspired by "Monica," a Grammy Award-winning R&B singer and songwriter who debuted in 1995 and became the youngest recording act with two consecutive chart-topping hits on the U.S. Billboard Top R&B Singles chart. Another well-known bearer is actress Monica Bellucci whose film career began in the early 1990s. Also known for fictional character "Monica Geller," played by Courteney Cox Arquette from the famed television sitcom "Friends," originally airing from 1994 to 2004.
