I'm gonna have to call shenanigans on that answer to #6 in the previous round. Doing a little digging, I turned up this quote on Wikipedia...
Mayovka, in the context of the late Russian Empire, was a picnic in the countryside or in a park in the early days of May, hence the name.
...which I could see someone taking out of context to make that claim elsewhere, but this certainly refers to the holiday being named after the month, not vice verse. The Russian Empire being a 18th-20th century deal, whereas the month of May (Maius in Latin) was a thing back in Roman Empire times.
