April Name Days

The name of the month derives from the Latin Aprilis, the fourth month in the Gregorian Calendar. There are two theories for its origin. It possibly derives from the Latin aperire "to open" - as spring is a time when flowers open up -- but another stronger theory suggests that the name is taken directly from Venus, the Roman goddess of love and fertility. The Romans held the month of Aprilis as sacred to Venus and her festival, the Festum Veneris et Fortunae Virilis, was celebrated on the first day of the of the month in the Roman liturgical calendar. Aprilis therefore could derive from her Greek name, Aphrodite, or the Etruscan form, Apru.
