Fact of the Day: The Day of the Moon

Monday's name comes from a Latin phrase meaning "day of the moon". The name also carries the lunar meaning in other languages such as Spanish's Lunes, German's Montag, French's Lundi, and even 月曜日 (Getsuyobi) in Japanese.

  11. Moon day eventually became Monday? It seriously looks like we have the current name due to spelling problems.
