Starting soon, I’m planning to write a Daily Mythology series of short stories. They’ll be inspired by the etymology of days’ names (yawn? I think not!):


Monday for Mani, Germanic god of the Moon.

Tuesday for Tiw, the one-handed Norse god of single combat and pledges.

Wednesday for Wodan, the Anglo-Saxon form of Odin.

Thursday for Thor!

Friday for Frigg, Norse goddess of foreknowledge and wisdom.

Saturday for Saturn, Roman god representing a Golden Age of peace and plenty.

Sunday for Sunna, Germanic goddess personification of the Sun.


This is quite a male-heavy list. Do you have a favourite goddess who could give these boys a run for their money? Let me know and I’ll try to work her into a story.
