As the title says. This is a reminder to add this to the help at some point before 1.16, just so players have an easy reference to it should they want it.

Current naming scheme:

January - Whitefire
February - Bleeding Moon
March - Scatterseed
April - Deeproot
May - Scryer's Bloom
June - Thorntress
July - Summit Star
August - Kindlefire
September - Stillseed
October - Reaper's Moon
November - Verglas Bloom
December - Blackfire

Is there background to these names? They all sound pretty dramatic.

I also wonder where these names come from. Are they already present?

They're not in yet. There'd be a greater backstory to them in SP rework, but for now you could imagine they have a lot of association with Elven magic.

Well, TBH, I think it's more confusing to swap out real world names by fantasy ones. And not just a few – will I ever memorize them and not mix them up either?

Except we never used any names in the first place (Wesnoth's calendar system has been the elephant in the room for ages) and they probably won't be too important for most people other than writers. And if you do mix them up, there's basically zero consequences for that.

Actually I'm going to use these names for Liberty for now, and if someone wants to suggest alternative names I'll swap them out later.

Just kinda wondering, was it intentional for Whitefire and Blackfire to be adjacent months?

(I asked this on the other thread too but then realized this is probably the more important thread on this topic.)

Yes, that's intentional.
