Commonly believed to originate from Thor, who is one of the Avengers, ‘Thor’s Day’ is actually a more recent replacement for the older (Old English) Thu(n)resdæg or ‘day of thunder’.
The etymology of this, in turn, is a translation of late Latin Jovis dies or ‘day of Jupiter’ (the God associated with thunder).
