“Many people drop the first “r”… as if it were spelled “Febuary”. This comes about by analogy with “January” … as well as by a dissimilation effect whereby having two “r”s close to each other causes one to change.” Wiki: February
Since other months, like January, are named after Roman gods, you’d be forgiven for thinking February was named after the Roman god Februus. But, the word February comes from the Roman festival of purification called Februa, during which people were ritually washed. In this case, the god was named after the festival, not the other way around. Dictionary.com: How Did The Month Of February Get Its Name?, Published January 31, 2022
“The name Super Bowl comes from the Super Ball, a bouncy rubber ball for children. Lamar Hunt, the founder of the American Football League, reportedly came up with the name after seeing his children play with the toy ball.” timeanddate.com: February Is the Second Month of the Year, Rehberger
