Gender: F Origin of Sunday: Word name

Sunday is among the most usable of the day names, with its sunny opening syllable, made famous when Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban chose it for their newborn daughter. Although it had been widely written that Kidman and Urban named their baby after art patron Sunday Reed, Kidman recently was quoted saying that was a myth, they just liked the name. There were only 29 girls named Sunday born last year, but perhaps more parents will be inspired by the Kidman-Urban choice.
