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.

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

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