September, Sept = seven

Septuple: 1. Consisting of seven parts or members.

[from Late Latin septuplus, from septem seven; compare quadruple]

Yeah, words have origins and stuff.

but where were the latin words derived from?

A lot of them came from the Greek language, such as philosophia which comes directly from its Greek counterpart

So with out July and August being added I wonder what year we would be in...can anyone calculate that? Pic related I'm just not a sexy fish lady

The months weren't added, just renamed, the Romans had 12 months too.

Oh, I thought they were added since people were pointing out how Octo for October is 8, but October is the tenth month that July and August bumped it up two spots.

I can't remember the reasoning for it but the Romans definitely had 12 months.

sex was the latin word for six...i dont have the entymology or anything i just remember playing a game in latin where we had to call out numbers and everyone would yell sex extra loud

sex is also swedish for six, and i assume many other languages borrowed it from latin and changed the pronounciation
