July Name Days

July was the fifth month of the Roman calendar. Originally it was called Quintilis "fifth" to reflect its position in the year, but was later renamed Iulius in honour of Julius Caesar. The meaning of the name is heavily debated: some believe it is from the Greek ioulos "downy beard;" others believe it to be a hypocoristic form of Iovis, a form of Jupiter. July is the month of sunshine, and it is no surprise that July has, on average, the highest number of hours of daylight in Britain*. Even the Vikings recognised it as such, naming it "Sól-mánuðr" or "sun month".
