Month Name and Length

August was originally a 30-day month called Sextilis, but it was renamed to honor the emperor Augustus Caesar by Augustus himself. An extra day was added to August so that it would not be shorter than July, which was named after Julius Caesar. Some say the extra day came from February but some historians say that February always had 28 days going back to the 8th Century B.C. (when January and February were added to the calendar) so the final word is not clear. Regardless, August now has 31 days.
