Origin: sæterndæg, from Sætern, from Saturnus, possibly from Etruscan, + dæg; a translation of dies Saturni
the seventh or last day of the week; the day following Friday and preceding Sunday
Origin: [OE. Saterday, AS. Saeterdaeg, Saeterndaeg, Saeternesdaeg, literally, Saturn's day, fr. L. Saturnus Saturn + AS. daeg day; cf. L. dies Saturni.]
Saturday is the day of the week following Friday and preceding Sunday. Saturday is the seventh and therefore last day of the week according to many commonly used calendars, but it is the second-to-last day of the week according to ISO 8601. Its Latin name dies Saturni entered into Old English as Saeternesdaeg. Saturday was named no later than the 2nd century for the planet Saturn, which controlled the first hour of that day according to Vettius Valens. Prior to that, the old English name was sunnanæfen.

Etymology and Origins
This, the seventh day of the week, was dedicated by the Romans to Saturn. As, however, all the other week-days were named by the people of Northern Europe in accordance with Scandinavian mythology, one must incline to the opinion that this was named after Sæter, a water deity. Its Anglo-Saxon designation was Sæterdæg.
