Best Answer

Kalendae is a Latin plural noun meaning "the first day of each month"; it is one of only a very few words in Latin spelled with a k, indicating probable ancient Etruscan origins. In English, it is often translated as "Kalends".

The modern English word calendar comes straight from this Latin word. The English marigold flower has the Latin name calendula, because it is in bloom practically all the year round.
