How Popular Is The Name Monday

Family name origins & meanings

  • 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 mōnandæg ‘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’.
