Our days in Scotland come from the Norse.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday the first day of the week.

 

The most important day.

 

A day for working and looking for food.

 

 

A day for flying  and enjoying the air

 

 English under the French rule forgot our Lundi

 

The Norse Lundi  (Puffin)  started the week 

 

 

Moon as Monday  can be for the English

 

But we  in Scotland can claim our Puffin (Lundi) to start our week

I checked some dictionaries for Monday, and only came upon the Latin lūnae diēs. AHD's etymology notes lead to Germanic roots, and http://www.wordsense.eu points at Proto-Germanic. I believe it's only a very similar word, but all the languages are related at some point!
