The names of the Jewish months are actually Babylonian and were brought back to Israel by Ezra and Nehemia after the Babylonian Exile. Until the naming of the Jewish months, they were simply known as the "first month", the "second month", and so on, starting their counting with the month of Nissan (when Passover falls out) and NOT with Tishrei (Rosh Hashana). So Rosh Hashana actually happens in the seventh month.
