Etymology: From Middle English < Old English todíge, tÅdíge, tÅ díge (on the day), made from (at, on) + díge (the dative of díg, "day").
  • The first component (to-) is from Middle English < Old English (towards, for the purpose of) < West Germanic
  • to < Proto-Indo-European pronominal base
  • do- (to, toward, upward).
  • The second component (-day) is from Middle English < Old English díg < Proto-Germanic
  • dagaz < Proto-Indo-European
  • dhegh- (to burn). It is not related to Latin dies (which is from PIE base
  • dyeu- to shine), but rather to Sanskrit dÄhas (heat), which came from PIE
  • dhegh- (to burn).
  • Thus, and day are not related to Spanish día, but to favor and fever.
