comment Etymology of “midsummer” — why is the first day of summer called “middle of summer”?
I'd add to that that you don't even need to be aware of the orbit, just that the moon goes from "full" to "none" to "full again". Thus, you have a cycle, and quarters of the cycle are named.

comment Résumé as summary vs document describing work experience
@Yve According to some answers to this question: english.stackexchange.com/questions/61338/…, a CV is used more in the academic context and supposed to be more detailed and broader, whereas a résumé is for applying for work. But they're often used interchangeably.
