Bird Dog at Maggie's Farm wonders whether the popularity of the name "Monica" has declined since it achieved a certain notoriety in presidential affairs. As it were. Well, it has. The source for name popularity is NameVoyager, which displays the relative frequency (in the United States) of just about any name over the last century or so. "Monica," as it turns out, has been in secular decline since its peak during the Carter administration, but it has indeed become substantially less popular in the last decade.
Draw your own conclusions.
