Roman Emperor Commodus (161-192 CE) named how many months of the Roman calendar after himself?

Answer: All twelve. The calendar was not the only thing changed. Commodus gave his name to the legions of the Roman army, the fleet bringing grain from Africa to Rome and even the Roman people themselves, who were to be called Commodianus.
