EtymologyEdit

From Middle English, from Old English þursdæġ, þurresdæġ (Thursday), possibly from a contraction of Old English þunresdæġ (Thursday, literally Thor's day), but more likely of North Germanic origin, from Old Norse þōrsdagr or Old Danish þūrsdag (Thursday); all from Proto-Germanic *Þunras dagaz (Thor's day). Compare West Frisian tongersdei, Low German Dunnersdag, Dutch donderdag, German Donnerstag, Danish torsdag. More at thunder, day.

A calque of Latin dies Iovis (dies Jovis), via an association of the god Thor with the Roman god of thunder Jove (Jupiter).
