Russian word meaning? It says that the Russian word понедельник means "After Sunday", but doesn't it come from the word неделя, for week, so it would mean "Beginning of the week" or something like that? In any case, if the section is called "Origins of the name", shouldn't it be talking about origins of the English word "Monday" rather than just random information about the word in other languages? I guess the fact that it is moon-related in all the other mentioned languages is relevant, maybe the entire piece about Russian is unnecessary. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:00, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
