Meaning & History

From the name of the day of the week, which derives from Old English tiwesdæg, itself composed of Tiw (genitive Tiwes) and dæg meaning "day". This was used as an African American name during the slave period, as were all the other weekdays; naming children after the weekday on which they were born is common in some African cultures, notably Akan, and early slaves in America continued this practice with the English translations. This is also borne by the American actress Tuesday Weld (1943-), birth name Susan Ker Weld.
