Funny enough, Augustus' real name is Octavius
Yep his full name was Gauis Octavius Thurinus but he went by Octavian after his adoption by Julius Caesar. Oct means 8 and October was originally the 8th month.
Guy named Octavian winds up with a month named after himself. What are the odds?

How did he end up being called Augustus then? Is it like how people called Richard can also be called dick?
I actually didn’t know this but according to a quick google search the Senate gave him the name Augustus as it meant “lofty” or “majestic.”
Augustus means The Exalted/Holy One” and was given to him after he became emperor. However, Augustus never wanted to be called emperor, he just positioned himself in every leading role in every body of the Roman government.

It was all over the news
So the early Romans had 10 months, starting with March, April, May, June. Then months 5-10 they got lazy and named after the numbers, quintilis, sextilis, September, October, November, December. And then the republicans kept the name of these 10 months the same and added January and February. And then caesar's birth month became July and Augustus got August. And now we're left with months 9-12 named after numbers 7-10.
Happy 4th of July, r/RaimiMemes :)
Everyone forgets about the great Novembius.
From here on out, October is spider-month
