Of course there is. Any lunar calendar adjusted for consistency with the 
solar year necessarily has occasional intercalar months. The Jewish calendar 
is the most prominent example. (The Islamic calendar, on the other hand, is 
the most prominent example of a lunar calendar that is NOT adjusted for the 
solar year, which explains why e.g. Ramadan rotates all over the solar year 
over the years.)
