The name July derives from Julius Caesar who was born in that particular month. Before that July was called Quintil because it was the fifth month of the Roman calender which started in March.
In the Attic calender of ancient Athens July was called Hekatombaion.
Today July is given the lovely nickname “oven“ because it is the hottest month of the year when temperatures can reach up to 40°C.
