The February name history

The Roman month was called Februarius which was named after the Latin term februum, which means purification as there would be a purification ritual Februa held on February 15 (which was a full moon) in the old lunar Roman calendar. January and February were the last two months to be added to the Roman calendar, as Romans originally discounted winter as a monthless period. They were added by Numa Pompilius in about 713 BC. However, February was the last month of the calendar year until the time of the decemvirs (c. 450 BC), when it became the second month.
