Oh that's interesting. I always assumed most of the English day names meant something completely different.

EDIT: I just checked Saturday out of curiousity, and that one is completely different between Danish and English.

English = Comes from the roman/latin name "Diēs Sātūrnī" which means "Saturn's day"
Danish = A corruption of the ancient nordic spelling "laugardagr" which meant "washing day". So I guess I'm supposed to do my laundry tomorrow.
