If you are getting the month name via a SQL query in the first place, maybe it would be better to change the original query.

Converting a datetime value to a string and then back to a datetime and then finally to an integer is expensive. Not TOO expensive, but still...

If you showed us the original query, we might be able to make this more efficient.
