Some days of the week are named af­ter Norse gods.

Canada's History - - TRADING POST -

This one is true! Wed­nes­day is named af­ter Odin, also known as Woten; hence, “Woten’s day.” His son, Thor, is re­mem­bered with “Thor’s day,” or Thurs­day. “Freya’s Day,” or Fri­day, is named af­ter a Norse love god­dess, while “Tiw’s Day,” or Tues­day, is named af­ter a war god.
