EtymologyEdit

From Middle English Tewesday, from Old English tīwesdæġ (Tuesday), from Proto-Germanic *Tīwas dagaz (Tuesday, literally Tiw's Day), from *Tīwaz (Tyr, god of war) + *dagaz (day). This was a Germanic interpretation of Latin dies Martis, itself a translation of Ancient Greek Ἄρεως ἡμέρα (Áreōs hēméra) (interpretatio romana). Cognate with Scots Tysday (Tuesday), Saterland Frisian Täisdai (Tuesday), West Frisian tiisdei (Tuesday), dialectal German Ziestag (Tuesday), Danish tirsdag (Tuesday), Swedish tisdag (Tuesday). More at Tyr, day.
