Tuesday is named after Tiw, who was the Germanic God of War — their equivalent of Mars!
Tuesday is thus, literally, “Tiw’s Day”.
More interestingly, the name “Tiw” comes from the Indo-European Root “Dye-us” (think of the T-iw and D-ye parallel with the final “-us” being lost) — from which we also get the Spanish word dios (for God) and the Sanskrit deva (we all know that that means!).
