I had to google that word to know what it means, and I think yuo are correct lol ^^


An interesting tidbit is that its Latin equivalent are named after Jupiter, God of lightning in the Roman Pantheon.

In weekly order with french as example, Worldie can probably confirm for Italian:
Monday: the Moon, duh (Lundi - la Lune)
Tuesday: Mars (Mardi)
Wednedsday : Mercury (Mercredi)
Thursday: Jupiter (Jeudi)
Friday: Venus (Vendredi)
Saturday and Sunday breaks the pattern (Samedi and Dimanche), but it might be due to roots in the day of Sabbat for Saturday, and the Day of the Lord (dies dominicus) and hint at a link between Sun Gods and the antique Christian worshipping.


And the english names come mainly from old nordic;
Monday, yeah moon.
Tuesday : Tyr's day
Wednesday; on nordi "Onsdag" - Odin's days (Wodin)
Thursday, well yeah, covered that.
Friday, is Freyr's day


Saturday is from Saturn, and Sunday is the day preceding the moons day, being the suns day (though some western traditions now use "Sonday" (translated) for "the day of the son (of God)".

Yeah, Thursday is pretty obvious if you're Norwegian - it's called Torsdag here, with Tor being his name, and 'dag' meaning 'day'. So, to us, literally Thor's Day! :lol:

Man, I feel boring now. The weekdays are "Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth". Saturday is "Sábado", from Shabbat, and Sunday (Domingo) means "day of the lord"

Yeah, it's portuguese. They go by Segunda, Terca, Quarta and Quinta-Feira -- whereas in spanish they go as Lunes, Martes, Miercoles, Jueves and Viernes, a reference to the astrological origin of the days (Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Venus) or so they say.

Saturday and Sunday are the same in both languages tho.
