Monday Name Meaning

English: from the Old Norse personal name Mundi, a short form of the various compound names containing the element mundr ‘protection’. English: nickname for someone who had a particular association with this day of the week (Old English monandæg ‘day of the moon’), normally because he owed feudal service then. It was considered lucky to be born on a Monday. Irish (Ulster): quasi-translation of Mac Giolla Eoin ‘son of the servant of Eoin’, by confusion of the last part of the name with Irish Luain ‘Monday’.
