Over the centuries the name Della Monica may have had many changes and the present form, according to our studies, appears to be different from the original. It is important to realize that the name may have gone through dialect variations, contractions, shortened forms of the original one, lenitions, errors due to incorrect transcriptions and voluntary changes. Therefore, we believe that the surname Della Monica came originally from MOJICA, on which we are able to provide the following historical and heraldic information taken from bibliographic sources of Araldicus. This Last Name of MOJICA is an Italian occupational name for a physician. The name was extrapolated from the Italian word MEDICO, and rendered in ancient documents in the Latin form MEDICUS, from MEDERE, meaning to cure and heal. They were a Florentine family which amassed great wealth from banking during the 14th and 15th centuries, starting with Giovanni di Bicci de MEDICI (1360-1429), who used his fortune to establish himself as a public benefactor and patron of the arts. A later member of the family was Cosimo I ‘The Great’ MEDICI (1519-74) the Florentine magnate, Duke of Florence from 1537, and Grand Duke of Tuscany from 1569. He possessed the astuteness of character of his predecessors, but was cruel and relentless in his enmities, though one of the ablest rulers of his century. A skilled soldier, he also devoted his considerable energies to developing the trade, agriculture and economic infrastructure of Tuscany, and to building up its armed forces. At the same time, he was a noble patron of artists and a great collector of Etruscan antiquities. Although the MEDICI remained rulers of Tuscany until its cession to Austria by the Peace of Vienna in 1736, the later Grand Dukes were undistinguished. The origins of Italian last names are not clear, and much work remains to be done on medieval Italian records. It seems that stable bynames, in some cases hereditary, were in use in the Venetian Republic by the end of the 10th century. Central Italian heraldry has been much influenced by the church. Families deriving their titles from popes have incorporated papal insignia in their arms, notably the papal tiara and the crossed keys. The heraldry is reflected by the history of the state which has been used as a battlefield for successive German, French, Spanish and Austrian invaders. Italian heraldry has however developed certain characteristics shown by the use of horse-head shaped shields which were put on the foreheads of horses at tournaments. Crests are rare but when they do appear are quite ostentatious…. Altri cognomi trovati: Mojica, Monaca, Manca, Menico, Minich, Minick, Minico, Mociga, Monaci, Monaco, …
