Did you know that in most Western languages, the name of the current month derives from the Latin “Maius (Majus) mensis” or “the month of Maia (Maja)”?  Maia or Maja was the wife of the Roman god Vulcan (Hefesto (Ἥφαιστος) to the Greeks) and a (perhaps minor) goddess of Earth.  She may not have been considered a very auspicious deity, however, and may not have been (as contemporary Neo-Pagans tend to believe of all ancient goddesses) a fertility agent.  In fact, Ovid calls her month “evil,” and strongly advises that May marriages are “unlucky.”
