Convert Month Number to Month Name Function in SQL

I have months stored in SQL Server as 1,2,3,4,...12. I would like to display them as January,February etc. Is there a function in SQL Server like MonthName(1) = January? I am trying to avoid a CASE statement, if possible.

Answer

A little hacky but should work:

SELECT DATENAME(month, DATEADD(month, @mydate-1, CAST('2008-01-01' AS datetime)))
