It's the same with English (and I'm pretty certain with other Germanic languages too).
Sunday (Sun Day), Monday (Moon Day), Tuesday (Tyr's Day), Wednesday (Odin's Day), Thursday (Thor's Day), and Friday (Frig's Day). Saturday is the only one to represent a Roman god (Saturn).
Plenty of Romantic languages also follow this pattern, but with Roman gods.
In Spanish, it's lunes (Moon Day), martes (Mars' Day), miércoles (Mercury's Day), jueves (Jupiter's Day), and viernes (Venus' Day). Only sábado (Sabbath Day) and domingo (Lord's Day) follow a Judeo-Christian pattern.
