The word April is rooted in the Latin Aprilis, which is derived from the Latin aperire meaning 'to open', which could be a reference to the blossoming of the flowers and trees, a common occurrence throughout the month of April in the Northern Hemisphere.

In old english, April was known as Eastre-monath as Easter would often fall in April.
