Tuesday vs. January vs. Winter

Which do you like or dislike? Middle name will be Elizabeth

The Top Baby Name is...







Poll created: Dec 05, 2013
Total Votes: 23


While none are my style, DEFINITELY Winter. Tuesday is bland - what’s special about Tuesday. It’s just a random day in the middle of the week. January is better, but still it’s not really a very special month to be using. Yes, it is winter so it has the imagery of winter but if you want that imagery just go straight to Winter.

Tuesday has been used as a girls name for a long time.

Of course it has, but that doesn’t mean it is a nice name.

I like unusual names and hate filler or twee names but these are simply not very nice.

I only like Winter. The other two just don’t sound like names to me, imo. I much prefer Janet to January, and Tuesday is just dull. Sorry! I really do like Winter, tho’.

Tuesday means Thor’s Day, so I’d save the name Thor for a boy.

Winter and Thor would be a kick [removed]ib set!

I like Sunday better than Tuesday (like Sunday Rose-- Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman’s daughter). I also don’t like January, I like August better.
So my vote goes to Winter! (although Autumn is prettier)

Actually, Thursday means Thor’s Day, not Tuesday. Tuesday actually means Týr/Tiw’s Day. (either spelling is acceptable, but I’ll use Tiw for the rest of this) Tiw was the god of war and law (also of single combat, victory, and heroic glory). A bit more about Tuesday’s etymology:

The name Tuesday derives from the Old English "Tiwesdæg" and literally means "Tiw’s Day". [1] Tiw is the Old English form of the Proto-Germanic god *Tîwaz, or Týr in Norse, a god of war and law. [2][3]

*Tîwaz derives from the Proto-Indo-European base *dei-, *deyā-, *dīdyā-, meaning ’to shine’, whence comes also such words as "deity". [4]

The Latin name dies Martis ("day of Mars") is equivalent to the Greek μέρα ρεως. In most languages with Latin origins (Italian, [5] French, [6] Spanish, [7] Catalan, [8] Romanian, [9] Galician, [10] Sardinian, [11]

Corsican, [12] but not Portuguese [13] ), the day is named after Mars, the Roman god of war.

In some Slavic languages the word Tuesday originated from Old Church Slavonic word въторъ meaning "the second" (Serbian: уторак (utorak)). Bulgarian and Russian "Вторник" (Vtornik) is derived from the Bulgarian and Russian adjective for ’Second’ - "Втори" (Vtori) or "Второй" (Vtoroi)

In Japanese, the word Tuesday is 火曜日(ka youbi), meaning ’fire day’ and is associated with 火星 (kasei): Mars (the planet), literally meaning "fire star". Similarly, in Korean the word Tuesday is 화요일 (hwa yo il), also meaning fire day.

In the Indo-Aryan languages Pali and Sanskrit, as well as in Thailand, the name of the day is taken from Angaraka (’one who is red in colour’) [14] a style (manner of address) for Mangal, the god of war, and for Mars, the red planet.

In the Nahuatl language, Tuesday is Huītzilōpōchtōnal (Nahuatl pronunciation: [wiːt͡siloːpoːt͡ʃˈtoːnaɬ] ) meaning "day of Huitzilopochtli".

From Wikipedia. Anyway, I don’t like Tuesday, especially on a little girl. Winter is much better.

There used to be an actress many years ago called Tuesday Weld. I don’t really find it that odd.
