Naming of August
In Latin it was named Augustus menilis, the "month of Augustust". In Latin, augere means "to grow, to glorify". August was named after Ceasar Augustus, the first emperor of Rome. Augustus's birth name was originally Gaius Octavius Thurinus; because of the meaning of the word "glorification," he received this nickname. Just like Julius Ceasar's July, which was 31 days, would be 31 days in his own month, there are 31 days in August. Since Augustus coincided with the period of Cleopatra's death, he requested that this month be placed on the calendar. The Roman calendar, which started with the month of March before this month change, was called Sextilis menelis (6th month) in Latin since August was the 6th month.
