It sounds more like one if you take into account that "v" turned into "gw" in many loanwords from Latin (e.g. gwin from vinum "wine", gwyrdd from viridis "green") and if you don't look at the nominative case Venus but instead at the word stem Vener- which you see e.g. in the ablative Venere -- or in the English "venereal disease".

From dies Veneris (day of Venus) to dydd Gwener it's then no longer such a big leap.
