Best Answer

Seven planets are named after a day of the week

However in English, only one planet is still named after a planet and that is Saturn.

In the the "romance languages", the names are still kept.

  • Tuesday - Mars
  • Wednesday - Mercury
  • Thursday - Jupiter
  • Friday - Venus
  • Saturday - Saturn

Monday is The Moon

Sunday is the Sun

Romance languages (French used as an example)

  • Tuesday - mardi
  • Wednesday - mercredi
  • Thursday - jeudi
  • Friday - vendredi
