April - The Month of Venus

The Romans called this month Aprilis, which is taken as deriving from aperire meaning to open, an allusion to Spring.

As this month was dedicated to Venus, the goddess of love, it has prompted some authorities to see a derivation from Aphrilis, the Romanised form of Aphrodite, the Greek name for the same goddess.
