If you see the modern swedish daynames I think it reveals more about this...
Tisdag (Tuesday) The T is probably from T in Tyr
Onsdag (Wendesday) The modern form "onsdag" is probably a reformed word for oden, since oden was considered to be the evil in the "beginning of the darkness"
Torsdag (Thursday) Tor= Thor in swedish, just U instead of O there, in the english version.
Fredag (Friday) Fre, just a letter less, then translated to something easier to pronounce in english, Fri.
