That’s just it. We use the old Norse names because 
of tradition, that’s how our parents named the days, 
not because we worship the old Norse gods. It’s in 
the language.

Similarly “it’s in the language” is why Aramaic 
speaking Jews would use the Aramaic names for 
the months even though not worshipping the 
Babylonian gods. If they were still speaking 
Hebrew as their primary tongue, would they 
not continue to use the Hebrew names for the 
months? If not, why not?
