Word Origin for April
c.1300, aueril, from Old French avril (11c.), from Latin (mensis) Aprilis "(month) of Venus," second month of the ancient Roman calendar, dedicated to the goddess Venus and perhaps based on Apru, an Etruscan borrowing of Greek Aphrodite. In English in Latin form from mid-12c. Replaced Old English Eastermonað, which was similarly named for a fertility goddess. Re-spelled in Middle English on Latin model (apprile first attested late 14c.).
