Thanks to everyone for their interesting suggestions concerning naming the
days of the week and months of the year.

What I've decided for Uusisuom is to name the months of the year after the
12 signs of the Zodiac - an attempt to be as impartial as possible.

So for example, February 1st falls during the time of 'Aquarius' and this is
simply translated as 'Vettameno' into Uusisuom (vetta = water, meno =

Another example: May (Taurus) is Viromeno (lit. 'bull month').

The days of the week I have translated very simply as follows:

Menotei - Monday (Moon day)
Tiistei - Tuesday
Keskotei - Wednesday (Middle day)
Torstei - Thursday
Vritei - Friday
Siltotei - Saturday (Star day)
Soletei - Sunday (Sun day)

Best wishes,
