Meaning:Of the sun goddess Sunna
The first day, the last day, and sometimes a sabbath, Sunday is a girl’s name of Norse origin, meaning “of the sun goddess Sunna.” The name Sunday comes from the Old English expressions sunne, meaning “sun,” and dæg, meaning “day,” and serves as a song of praise to one of the mighty figures of Germanic mythology. As legend and lore go, the goddess Sunna—also known as Sól—would spend her days hauling the sun across the sky before being hunted and bested by a wolf beast named Skoll. Sunna might not be here to shine her light on your little one, but with a name like Sunday, her legacy may live on!
