How to get the Month Name in C#?

You can use the CultureInfo to get the month name. Another way is to use extension methods. Here is an example of how to do it using extension methods:

Add a DateTimeExtensions class to your project.

static class DateTimeExtensions
{
    public static string ToMonthName(this DateTime dateTime)
    {
        return CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.DateTimeFormat.GetMonthName(dateTime.Month);
    }

    public static string ToShortMonthName(this DateTime dateTime)
    {
        return CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.DateTimeFormat.GetAbbreviatedMonthName(dateTime.Month);
    }
}

Now you can simply use these extension methods in your project like any other DateTime method.

using System;
using System.Globalization;

class Program
{
    static void Main()
    {

        Console.WriteLine(DateTime.Now.ToMonthName());
        Console.WriteLine(DateTime.Now.ToShortMonthName());
        Console.Read();
    }
}
