Comes from the Latin and means admirable mother and/or teacher. Mexicans will name their daughters Escolastica usually after the child's grandma. They do it after asking God and the Virgen de Guadalupe for a huge favor and if God complies they will name their daughter Escolastica without giving it a second thought. An Escolastica will get made fun of until she develops at which time guys will say its a beautiful name as a poor excuse for a compliment. Don't name your child Escolastica because its a hard name for non-Mexicans to say and the name will be butchered over and over again.
Teacher: "John Smith"
John Smith: "Here!!"
Teacher:"...Now this one is a little hard, so I'm sorry if I don't say it right....Es-..UM..-c..."
Escolastica: "Its pronounced ES-CH-LUHS-TEE-KA, Mrs."
