Check out the format strings available with the date function. You can't use it directly to translate 2 to Feb, but you could probably write your own function that pieces it together into a timestamp with mktime and then use that timestamp to format the date with a short textual representation of the month.

Something like so (untested):
function GetMonthString($n)
    $timestamp = mktime(0, 0, 0, $n, 1, 2005);
    return date("M", $timestamp);
