Etymology edit

From Middle English Februarie, februari, februare, from Latin Februārius (the month of the Februa), from Fēbrua (the Purgings, the Purifications), a Roman holiday two days after its ides (i.e., Feb. 15), + -arius (-ary: forming adjectives). Fēbrua from fēbruum (purging), from an earlier Sabine [Term?] word, possibly from Proto-Indo-European *dʰewh₂- (smoke, haze) and thus cognate with English thio- (sulfurous) and Ancient Greek θεῖον (theîon, sulfur) or from Proto-Indo-European *dʰegʷʰris, an extension of the root *dʰegʷʰ- (to burn) and thus cognate with English fever and Latin febris. A relatinization abandoning feoverel, from feverier.
