Painting depicting the Norse god Thunor (the Norse Thor), after whom Thursday is named, by Mårten Eskil Winge, 1872 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thursday
The Norse God of Thunder is today’s namesake. Thor is derived from the Germanic Thunraz which is equivalent to Jupiter in Roman mythology.
Why do we still use this name? Haven’t we progressed from Norse gods?
Why not use a note of the musical scale or an element on the periodic table?
Today’s haiku questions: Thor’s Day
Are names important?
Would today be different
if it were renamed?
Just asking …
