One of the benefits of the French Republican Calendar is that each day is named after a plant, animal, mineral, or farm tool. And the app that I have on my phone to give me the date also allows me to click on the day-name, which automatically looks it up. I have been learning a great deal each day by looking up the day-name. For example, today is 15 Floréal, Silkworm. I clicked on Silkworm and learned all about that particular animal. Very interesting!
15 Floréal CCXXVI, Silkworm.

I like months named for their characteristics. (...for whenever people would favorably to and accept that proposal) Such names could be customized for particular locations. Some would probably apply nearly everywhere on the same side of the equator. For example, "Floreal" is probably descriptive at most places north of the Equator--regardless of whether its climate is warm or cold. Likewise "Germinal" before that.But, as I was saying in an earlier post, it would be necessary for the definition and rules to explicitly month-naming custom-flexibility, so that the names wouldn't contradict a month's characteristics in some locations. And, as I also said, for full international applicability, it would be necessary to name their months for their place (numbering?) in the seasons--where the seasons are called South, Northward, North, and Southward.. Speaking for myself, I like naming one-month seasons of Pre-Northward and Pre-Southward.
