From 端 (duān, “opening”) + 午 (wǔ, “seventh earthly branch”). The name refers both to the original day of the festival, the first seventh-day (午日 (Wǔrì)) in the fifth lunar month (五月 (Wǔyuè)) of the traditional Chinese calendar, and the month itself which was also known from its position in the earthly branch cycle as 午 (wǔ).
