Assuming the English language, a manual count or automatic letter frequency counter shows the letter E occurs the most at 11 times.

The frequency of the various letters that appear in the names of the months in English is:
11 E
9 R
7 A
6 U
5 B, M
4 Y
3 C, J, N, O, T
2 L, P, S
1 D, F, G, H, I, V

No link - I just listed the letters in a spreadsheet and did a count.
