Information About the Month of October
The word October was derived from the Latin “Octo” meaning eight (8). October retained its name from the Latin origin when July and August, named after Julius and Augustus Caesar respectively, were inserted into the calendar that had originally been created by the Romans. It is now considered the tenth (10th) month in the now widely used Gregorian calendar. Consequently, it is the gateway into the last quarter of the Gregorian calendar.
