When reading about the origin of the months I found this sentence: This month is named after the Roman goddess Juno, Jupiter's wife.

I already know that in Spanish it's said like this: este mes se llama así en honor a Juno, diosa romana, esposa de Júpiter. However I can't figure the translation for the word after. Also found like these: This day is named after the sun.

Hi there!

As you probably know, after indeed means "después" in its most common use: I will come after lunch.
For this sentence: This month is named after the Roman goddess Juno, Jupiter's wife.
after can be translated as "en honor a" as you said. It means that Juno is the origin of the name of this month. It is named according to...
It has nothing to do with time (después).

Hope it helps a bit!
Thanks a lot girls! Emotion: big smile I've just got this
after = por

(like) to be named after someone / llamarse de un modo por alguien: he was named Michael after his grandfather se llamaba Michael por su abuelo;
So
this month is named after... means este mes se llama así por...
