Monica is a feminine name of Latin origin greatly associated with acts of service. As love language goes, Monica is the figure primed to help and advise—a trait only invigorated by the beloved Friends series. But before the famed fictional chef transformed Monica into a synonym for practicality and caregiving, its meaning stood simply as "advisor." Though an altogether fitting meaning for many millennials, the name's most revered representative is the mother of Augustine of Hippo, Saint Monica. Her devotion and care is the very thing that turned the greatest saint from a life of absolute self-destruction, forever cementing Monica as the ultimate caregiver.
