Latin[edit]

Etymology[edit]

By syncope from earlier *decumo-mēmbris, analogically to septem : september, from earlier *decumo-mēnsris "of the tenth month", from the ordinal stem decem ‎(ten) + *mēnsris, from mens- ‎(month) + -ris. In the Roman calendar, the year began with mārtius ‎(March), and december was the tenth month of the year.
