May month number

May is the fifth month of the year in the Gregorian calendar, and it has 31 days. In the ancient Roman calendar, May was the third month and was called "mens maius" because the year began in March.

May (Maius in Latin) was probably named after the Greek goddess Maia, who was associated with the Roman goddess of fertility, Bona Dea, whose festival took place in May. The Roman poet Ovid, offered an alternative explanation for the origin of May's name, suggesting that May was named after the Latin word maiores, meaning "elders," while June was named after iuniores, meaning "young people."
