The APRiL NAME & ORiGiN:
The Romans gave this month the Latin name of Aprilis (the derivation of this name is uncertain). The traditional etymology came from the verb aperire, which means to open, in allusion to it being the season when trees and flowers begin to open, which is supported by comparison with the modern Greek use of ἁνοιξις (anoixis) which means opening for Spring.
