And the months?

History Of The Names Of The Months

Originally 10 (4 Gods and 6 numbers)

Julius Caesar added two new months at the beginning of the calendar so as not to upset set holiday dates. And after his death month number five but now the 7th month was renamed in his honour. Month number six but the 8th month was renamed in the new Emperor's honour.
