Všechno nejlepší k svátku! (All the best for your name day, Monika!)

Today we honor Monika.  Happy Name Day, Monika!
Monika is the Czech form of Monica.  Monica is possibly of Greek origin, meaning "solitary", or of Latin origin, meaning "to advise".  Saint Monica, the mother of Saint Augustine, prayed for her son and saved him from self-destruction.  As a result, Saint Augustine became one of the greatest saints in history.
