In English, e.g., five days of the week get their names from Germanic and Norse deities:
- Tuesday = Tiu's day (Tiu is another name for Tyr),
- Wednesday = Wodan's day (Germanic name for Odin),
- Thursday = Thor's day,
- Friday = Frey or Frigg ('s) day,
- Saturday = Sataere's day.
Still, it is surprising that so little of the Norse and Germanic mythology is part of our common daily knowledge...
