    January - Roman god Janus

    March - Roman god Mars

    May - Roman goddess Maia

    June - Roman goddess Juno


    April is also connected to Venus, I think, but I can't remember the etymological link


  • Boatman

    "Since some of the Roman months were named in honor of divinities, and as April was sacred to the goddess Venus, the Festum Veneris et Fortunae Virilis being held on the first day, it has been suggested that Aprilis was originally her month Aphrilis, from her equivalent Greek goddess name Aphrodite (Aphros), or from the Etruscan name Apru."

    @ Gordon: Thanks for looking that up.  I was feeling too lazy yesterday to do my homework.
