    All of us well know that pent represents a number, Pentateuch or Pentagon being 5 , hexagon being 6. Lets go to octagon meaning 8. Now remember October is the 10th month. I don't know if pent , hex or oct is Latin or Greek. But I am willing to bet this has something to do with the Julian calendar or Gregorian calendar.

    Blame this on the Roman brown nosers telling Julius Ceaser he was so great that they should name a month after him, so came July. Then the same thing happened years later with Augustus Ceaser. Now there are 12 months of the calendar year. These so called suck asses, were actually very intelligent people. There was political fall out from this. People in that time paid rent by the month like some of us do. Lets say there were 40 day's in a month and your paying $500. Now you are paying $500 for 31, 30, 29 or 28 days.
