Production News: Discover How The Months Were Named With Stikins Name Labels
Stikins Presents: How The Months Got Their Name (Labels)
The start of a new month got the name labels team thinking about the names we use for months. They come from the Roman Calendar, which originally contained 10 months beginning with March. January and February extended the winter period at the “end” of each year. Though they became the “start” of the year, March remained a starting point due to its association with the arrival of spring.
Germanic Calendars named months after agricultural seasons. Their names refer to a specific agricultural event along with a suffix (e.g. monath/manoth) derived from the word for moon.
