Did you actually mean monish or monaco?


  1. Monicanoun

    A female given name from Latin.

    They named her Monica. Why the name was chosen I have never learnt; but I do not conceive that there was any reason for the choice other than the taste of her parents in the matter of sounds. It is a pleasing enough name, euphoniously considered, and beyond that — as is so commonly the case — no considerations were taken into account. To her, however, at once imaginative and of a feeble and dependent spirit, the name was fateful. St. Monica was made the special object of her devotions in her childhood, and reigned so later when she became a wife.

  2. Etymology: Latin Monica, name of the mother of St. Augustine, of uncertain origin and meaning; suggestions include Ancient Greek μόνος (mónos, " alone") and Latin moneō ("I advise"), but likely of Punic origin.

Basically, they just told us that they had tried. They called [the Department of the Interior], they called the White House.
