Just realized..

Octennial, Novennial, Decennial - 8th, 9th and 10th year adjectives.
Octal, Nonal, Decimal - base 8, 9 and 10 number systems.
Octagon, Nonagon, Decagon - 8, 9 and 10 sided polygons.

October, November, December - 10th, 11th and 12th months.

Frikkin Ceasar and his calendar. His salads are nice, though.

Also, following after decade, decagon, and decennial, I propose that December should be pronounced Dick-ember.

(Also just realized: the song would then go like "This is my dick-ember ...")
