  • VictorMedvil changed the title to The Month of Mars!

I always thought March was the month of Mars

 

Why Is March Called March?

The name March comes from the Latin Martius or Martius mensis, after the Roman god of war, Mars. In ancient Rome, this was also the month when armed conflicts would resume after the winter months.

 

Latin - Martius mensis - Month of Mars

Old English - Martius

Middle English - March or Marche

Lol,  Oceanbreeze it's the month of mars because of mars missions not because of the literal meaning however you are probably right.
