Tanakh

Tanakh Only four pre-exilic month names appear in the Tanakh (the Hebrew Bible): Aviv (first; literally “Spring”, but originally probably meant the ripening of barley), Ziv (second; literally “Light”), Ethanim (seventh; literally “Strong” in plural, perhaps referring to strong rains), and Bul (eighth), and all are Canaanite names, and at least two are Phoenician (Northern Canaanite). figbranch.com/index2.php?option=com_content&do_pdf=1&id=14
