The mid-day of the week is named for the Norse God, Odin. He was also known as Woden or Wotan. Unlike many of the other days of the week, this day did not correspond roughly w…ith the Roman designation for the day. (The Roman's named Wednesday for the messenger God - Mercury - In Romanian, the day is still known as miercuri). The early Scandanavians and Germans believed that Odin was the chief God of Asgard and as such deserved to have a day of the week named for him. The Anglo-Saxons used the word, Wodnesdaeg .. Answer . Other days of the week are also of Saxon/Norse origin: Tuesday, Friday and Thursday (for Tir, Freya and Thor respectively, all Norse gods/goddesses although like Wodnes (or Widnes) the names change slightly in the transition from Old Norse to Anglo-Saxon).

It came from the Norse God Woden, as in "Wodnesdaeg", which means the day of Woden.
I'm leaving the original answer below the hyphens, but it's worth noting that Ash Wednesday does not have biblical origins. Ash Wednesday, like many Christian traditions pract…iced in the U.S. and Europe are actually a hybrid of Pagan/Christian beliefs. In any case, the term may have originated in Northern Europe where the God Wodin was symbolically protected by having the ashes of King Sigurd put on his head. It's worth mentioning that Norse warriors would also get ashes smeared on their heads to protect them in battle. The calendar day Wednesday comes from the God Wodin as well. This would describe Ash Wednesday's origins (Ash Wodin). -- Ash Wednesday is the start of Lent, when Jesus went to the desert and spent 46 days being tempted by Satin. In Ancient biblical times, to put ash on ones self was a sign of sorrow of repentance for sin. Lent is a time when Christians are supposed to cleanse themselves of sin, so all of ones sins that one committed outside of Lent are to be forgiven as you enter it. Usually, the priest burns the palm fronds from the previous year's Palm Sunday and puts the ashes on one's head in the shape of a cross.
