EtymologyEdit

From Old Portuguese segunda feira (Monday), from Ecclesiastical Latin secunda fēria (Monday, literally second weekday). Replaced earlier lues. Compare Galician segunda feira and Mirandese segunda-feira.

The loss of the original Latin weekday names is sometimes ascribed to influence from Arabic, in which the days are numbered in a way similar to modern Portuguese. Note however that the same did not happen in Spanish, where Arabic influence was generally stronger.
