  5. "Ми любимо липень."

"Ми любимо липень."

Translation:We like July.

June 14, 2017



Do these month names come from the Gregorian calendar or something? I half expect July and August to be closer to those in romance languages and English coming from the Caesers and all


The meaning of the root of the name (the part before "-ень")

  • Січень: cut (the snows cutting your face, I guess)
  • Лютий: rage
  • Березень: birch
  • Квітень: flower
  • Травень: grass
  • Червень: red
  • Липень: linden
  • Серпень: sickle
  • Вересень: heather (plant)
  • Жовтень: yellow
  • Листопад: "leaf" + "fall"
  • Грудень: lump (I guess lumps of snow)


No, they are Slavic. Липень originally meant the time when липа (linden) is blooming.
