I remember them as the names of planets: Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus. Sábado is very similar to Saturday in Russian - суббота. Domingo has to be remembered as is, but actually i do remember that it's the "day of Lord".

Well, sábado is not related to Saturn, the Roman god of agriculture, it's from hebrew word shabbat, although in Latin it was "dies Saturni".

It is weird that a lot of languages took the word Shabbat(שבת) to name Saturday, I'm an Hebrew speaker and that's why I find it easy to learn how to say Saturday in a lot of languages.

Most of these (Saturday and Sunday excepted) correspond to associations with the Norse gods who gave the days their names in English. So if you know your mythology, you can remember that way.

"Tuesday" = "Tyr's Day." Tyr and Mars are both war gods.

"Wednesday" = "Odin's Day." Odin and Mercury were both gods of magic (among other things)

"Thursday" = "Thor's Day." Thor and Jove were both gods of thunder.

"Friday" = "Frigg's Day." Frigg and Venus were both goddesses of love.

And of course "Monday" is "Moon Day."
