RIDDLE - Norse mythology


"Uncle Jimmy, we're studying Norse mythology and I keep forgetting some of the names, can you help?" Andrew asked.
"Certainly," Jimmy replied, "let's pick a few to start with: Odin, his wife Frigg, Thor, and Tyr. You really already know these names, or at least the Anglo-Saxon equivalent. Woden is the Anglo-Saxon equivalent of Odin, the wise, one-eyed, chief god. Frige is the Anglo-Saxon equivalent of Frigg, the goddess of clouds and sky. Thunor is the Anglo-Saxon equivalent of Thor, the god of thunder. Tiw is the Anglo-Saxon equivalent of Tyr, the god of war and battle."
"Sorry, but those names don't seem any more familiar," Andrew protested.
"What if I told you those four names are related to the sun, the moon, and the planet Saturn?"
"What? That's even more confusing."
"Final clue, they are the basis of a naming system that we use every day."
In what way are these names commonly used about which Andrew should be aware?
Hint: They are names that we use every DAY. Here is the list in order: the sun, the moon, Tiw, Woden, Thunor, Frige, and Saturn.
