Europe may be entering the New Year still pretty much as one - but not much unites the continent when it comes to actually saying 'January'. Or 'januar', 'janvier' or, indeed, 'styczeń'.
Cartographer Jakub Marian - who also brought us European maps showing the age of consent, the age of prostitution and how to say 'Merry Christmas' - has mapped how people across Europe say 'January'.
It turns out that European words for the first month of the year have pretty wide-spread roots.

The English 'January' comes from the Latin 'ianuarius', which means 'of Janus', the Roman god of doorways, gates transitions, beginnings and endings, according to Marian.
Other European languages - shown in red in the map - share this derivitive.
Further East, in green, the Polish, Ukrainian and Croatian words 'styczeń', 'січень' and 'siječanj' share roots - the Proto Slavic '*sěčьńь', which referred to a time when trees were being cut down.
Here are some more etymologies:
And, no, 'more maps at jakubmarian.com' is not how you say 'January' in any North African language.
