Monday = Moon's Day = Moon (Lunes (Luna) in Spanish))

Tuesday = Tyr's Day = Mars (Martes in Spanish)

Wednesday = Wotan's Day = Mercury (Miercoles in Spanish)

Thursday = Thor's Day = Jupiter (Jueves in Spanish)

Friday = Freya's Day = Venus (Viernes in Spanish)

Saturday = Saturn's Day  = Saturn (Sabado in Spanish)

Sunday = Sun's Day = Sun (Domingo in Spanish)

The English names for the days of the week are obviously of pagan origin.

They were actually named after the 7 planets of the ancient solar system.


Even some of the months are named for Roman emperors.
