"Chwefror" is a borrowing from Latin "februārius" (which represented the purification month, and also a close cognate of "fever", and is also more distantly related to English "day" and "foment", Sanskrit "दहति" (dahati, "to burn"), Tocharian B "tsäk-" (to burn), Albanian "ndez" (to light), Persian "داغ‎" (dāġ, "hot"), etc.).
