    I had to mouse over åttonde to figure out how to spell eighth... in English

    I relied on my spell checker... I don't think I have ever written it out before.

    These seems to be the most common was to talk about months in a year, but would "Augusti är åttonde månad året" be wrong? (Not for this question, just in general)

    Yes, it's wrong. You could say augusti är den åttonde månaden på året.
