What is a blue moon?

Is the definition of a blue moon as the second full moon in a month really a misinterpretation of the traditional one?

A blue moon can refer to the third full moon in a season with four full moons, or the second full moon of a calendar month.[1] Most years have twelve full moons which occur approximately monthly.
