A couple of things you never needed to know:

Four of the seven days of the week are named after the Asgard:

Tuesday = Norse: Tiw. Teutonic: Tyr
Wednesday = Norse: Odin. Teutonic: Wotan
Thursday = Norse: Thor. Teutonic: Donar
Friday = Norse: Frigg. Teutonic: Frikka
Saturday = Norse: Saturn. Teutonic: Saturn

For Christendom which overcame the Norse and Teutonic pantheons;

The Vatican City was named after the hill on which it stands: The Hill of the Vaticanatores (L. Soothsayers) Upon that hill once stood the Temple of Apollo.

QUOTE(Alexander Pope)

"What mighty contests arise from trivial things?"
