 I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but you in fact got the
 traditional associations of the Nordic Gods (days of the week)
 with the Roman Gods (planets) exactly correct...including
 identifying Mercury with Woden.  In late Latin, these days
 were in fact "Mars's day", "Mercury's day", "Jupiter's day"
 and "Venus's day", a fact which can still be seen in modern
 Romance languages (in French, for example, they are Mardi,
 Mecredi, Jeudi and Vendredi).

Sweet.  I was sort of gambling on that when I wrote up the day of the week associations.  (And I should have noticed, having taken Spanish.)
