An interesting question.

abbreviated = shortened

Well, if you consider that most months are either 30 days or 31 days long, but February is only 28 days long, I guess you could say that February is an abbreviated month.

But I suspect you have a different question in mind. (I can think of, at least, two others.)

Yes, the names of months can be abbreviated:
Jan
Feb
Mar
etc.

And then there's the word month, or months, usually abbreviated mo., or mos. (I hope we got it with one of these!)
