Friday is originated from an old english term meaning "day of frige". I belive frigg,the wife of odin and goddess of married love and of the hearth was given to the fifth day of the week in an act honouring the goddess and evoking her rulling characteristics into the earthly realm similar to most polytheist traditions and modalitys.
