5/12, Welcome May!

Feeling in the middle of the year already, but it’s still almost guys! We have to finish this May to go to the middle of 2022. Time flies huh? but we are the pilot anyway. Well, it’s time for mayapples to bloom, just like you who have “May” in your name, your day is coming buddy!

Let’s talk a bit about something etymological here, it’s quite insightful for you who have “May” in your name, we guess. Quoted from Wikipedia, there are two etymologies of “May”, the first said that “May” comes from Latin, which is “Maius”. It was a name for the Greek goddess “Maia” who was identified with the Roman era goddess of fertility, Bona Dea, whose festival was held this month. She is also the goddess who embodied the concept of growth, both in nature and in business, she oversaw the growth of plants. The second said that it’s provided by the Roman poet Ovid, who says that May is named for the maiores, Latin for “elders”. Besides those two, timeanddate.com gives another etymology, where Others connect ”Maius” with ”Maiores” which are the ancestors or the greater ones.

Now, for you who have “May” in your name may feel greater as you know the more meaning behind your name. Also, you must be that Taurus (a.k.a the bull), or that Gemini. What have you prepared for your month by the way besides your birthday celebration?
