Quadrillion, quintillion sextillion etc. In terms of zeros an actual billion billion is a quintillion. Itís too much to fathom. Think we need a decillion and weíll have the stadium of our dreams

A million millions is an English billion. The one we all use (a thousand million) is the american 9and now universally accepted) billion.

It follows your basic latin-based/med type language:

Bi
Tri
Qua
Qui
Sex
Sept
Oct
Nov
Dec
Undec
Duodec
Tredec
etc

Originally called Quintilis and Sextilis - fifth and sixth month. Shame that they started with the names of gods/goddesses/festivals and seasons and then just said "yeah we'll just call them after the order they come in".

Roman Calendar:

March = named after the god of war, Mars
April = Noone actually knows. Best guess is it means to open, i.e. spring (Aperire)
May = Named for Elders (maiores)
June = Named for kids (iuniores)
Quintilis = 5th month
Sextilis = 6th month
September = 7th month
October - 8th month
November = 9th month
December = 10th month


Quintilis became July because Julius Ceasar was born then
Sextilis became August for Augustus

Every 2 years they added a month called Mercedonius to make up for the non-solar basis of their calendar. This became, basically February (Month of purification, from them ritual of Februm). This was static and our leap day was brought in for the same reason.

They then added a 12th month to match the solar cycle. January = Door i.e. the door to the new year. (Similarly Janus, god of new beginnings)


(Our days have a similarly eclectic etymology.
Sunday = day of the sun
Monday = day of the moon
Tuesday = Tyr's day (Norse god of war)
Wednesday = Wodens day (Germanic version of Odin)
Thursday = Thor's day
Friday = Frigg's day (Odin's wife)
Saturday = Saturn's day (Named after the planet, not the god. Although the planet is named after the guy who castrated his sky-father dad)
