As a matter of facts, we all do that to some extent: the last few months
in English (and in many western European languages) are named as if the
year started in March (because that used to be the case for Latin
calendar, I believe):

 * September from "septem", which is "seven";
 * October from "octo", which is "eight";
 * November from "novem", which is "nine";
 * December from "decem", which is "ten".

Fortunately we at least agree on being wrong in this case.
