[Answer] What month is named after the Latin word for ten?

We have looked all around the web to find the most relevant answer to your query: 


What month is named after the Latin word for ten?


  • December:December is named after the Latin word decem, which means ten. That's because December was originally the tenth month of the year in the Roman calendar, which began in March. The winter days following December were not included as part of any month. Later, the months of January and February were created out of the monthless period and added to the beginning of the calendar. When the Roman senate changed the calendar in 153 BCE, the new year started in January, and December became the twelfth month but retained its name. Under the new Julian calendar, December was expanded from 29 to 31 days.
