Just like weekday, WordPress uses
month global variable to store the month names. It is a single dimensional array set in [wordpress root folder/wp-includes/locale.php]. It stores the localized values of the month names.
Plugin and theme developers can access this global variable, however, to retrieve time and date information about posts within a loop the functions mentioned in weekday can be used.
