Let’s look at some of the names of the months in Gaelic
This comes from an old word, faol, meaning wolf, and January means the wolf-month.
The word gearran also means a spayed horse. This is just a coincidence and we don’t know the link.
This is easy to remember as it named after the Roman God Mars, like March.
The Gaelic for August, the name comes from the old god Lugh who was the pagan god of the sun.
October is when the stag roars and makes a noise in the glens. Dàmh is the Gaelic for a stag. Apparently dàir is thought to mean disturbance.
November was the great Celtic festival at the beginning of winter, and the last night before the beginning of November – Halloween.
The last month is December – the month which is dark and that is what the name implies.
