Days of the week origin

Have you ever wondered what the etymology of the weekday names is? No? We didn't either. Apart from the obvious Sunday, we didn't think about it before.

The Romans named the days after their gods and the celestial bodies such as Moon and Sun. Romance languages still resemble those names, but English names were filtered through the ages by Germanic and Norse culture. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday names are influenced by their myths, but Moon, Sun, and Saturn are still visible cores in the remaining days' names:
