Etymology[edit]

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 rendering of Latin dies Martis in interpretatio germanica, itself a translation of Ancient Greek [script needed] ‎(Areos hemera) (interpretatio romana). Cognate with Scots Tysday ‎(Tuesday), West Frisian tiisdei ‎(Tuesday), German dialectal Ziestag ‎(Tuesday), Danish tirsdag ‎(Tuesday), Swedish tisdag ‎(Tuesday). More at Tyr, day.
