Historically, month names are names of moons lunations , not necessarily full moons in lunisolar calendars. Since the introduction of the solar Julian calendar in the Roman Empire, and later the Gregorian calendar worldwide, people no longer perceive month names as "moon" names.
The traditional Old English month names were equated with the names of the Julian calendar from an early time soon after Christianization , according to the testimony of Bede around AD Some full moons have developed new names in modern times, such as " blue moon ", as well as "harvest moon" and "hunter's moon" for the full moons of autumn. Lunar eclipses occur only at full moon and often cause a reddish hue on the near side of the Moon. This full moon has been called a blood moon in popular culture. The "harvest moon" and the "hunter's moon" are traditional names for the full moons in late summer and in the autumn in the Northern Hemisphere , usually in September and October, respectively.
The "harvest moon" is the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox 22 or 23 September , occurring anytime within two weeks before or after that date. The names are recorded from the early 18th century. All full moons rise around the time of sunset. Since the Moon moves eastward among the stars faster than the Sun, lunar culmination is delayed by about Due to the high lunar standstill , the harvest and hunter's moons of were special because the time difference between moonrises on successive evenings was much shorter than average. This is because the full Moon of September rose in the northeast rather than in the east.
Hence, no long period of darkness occurred between sunset and moonrise for several days after the full Moon,  thus lengthening the time in the evening when enough twilight and moonlight to work to get the harvest in.

Most pre-modern calendars the world over were lunisolar , combining the solar year with the lunation by means of intercalary months. A continuing lunisolar calendar is in the Hebrew calendar. Evidence of this is noted in the dates of Passover and Easter in Judaism and Christianity, respectively. Passover falls on the full moon on 15 Nisan of the Hebrew calendar. The date of the Jewish Rosh Hashana and Sukkot festivals along with all other Jewish holidays are dependent on the dates of the new moons. In lunisolar calendars, an intercalary month occurs seven times in the 19 years of the Metonic cycle , or on average every 2.
In the Hebrew Calendar this is noted with a periodic extra month of Adar in the early spring.

The term "blue moon" used in this sense may date to as early as the 16th century, but it became well known in the United States due to the Farmers' Almanac published since According to the Farmers' Almanac , a "blue moon" is the third full moon in any period between either solstice and equinox, or between equinox and solstice, calculated using the mean tropical year , which contains four full moons.
