Etymology[edit]

Possibly from a contraction of þunresdæġ(Thursday, literally Thor's day), but more likely from Old Norse þōrsdagr or Old Danish þūrsdag(Thursday) (compare modern torsdag); all from Proto-Germanic *Þunras dagaz(Thor's day), a calque of Latin dies Iovis, equivalent to Old English þunres(genitive of the god's name Þunor) +‎ dæġ(day). More at thunder, day.
