These baby names are inspired by the day of the week that you were born on

There is an old English poem from way back in 1838 that explains the personality of each child by the day of the week that they are born on. 

It goes like, ''Monday's child is fair of face, Tuesday's child is full of grace, Wednesday's child is full of woe, Thursday's child has far to go'' and so on.

Inspired by this, have you ever thought about naming your little one after the day they were brought into the world?

Not necessarily calling them Friday or Sunday, but choosing a moniker that takes inspiration in some way from their birthday.

So here are a few ideas, see if you like any of them…
