ghInjaj 		Saturday (n)

(De'vID, Maltz answered at qepHom 2013):  tlhIngan Hogh jajmey pongmey bIH.  Delpu' malth.  De' vIQay neH:  DaSjaj Monday, povjaj Tuesday, ghItlhjaj Wednesday, loghjaj Thursday, buqjaj Friday, lojmItjaj/ghInjaj Saturday.  ({lojmItjaj} is used for more formal occasions, but both are used interchangeably otherwise).  For weekdays above six, such as found on alien calendars, they're simply counted starting with {jaj wa'} for the seventh weekday: {jaj wa'} - Terran 'Sunday' (no analogue on the Klingon calendar); note that this is consistent with its usage from Star Trek: The Exhibition {jaj cha'} [...] 

  "All of the weekdays are references to the lyrics of The Beatles' "Lady Madonna'." (De'vID, 6/28/2018)
  "Most of them are, anyway. The extra Saturday name can be found in "Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite".  Marc (uncharacteristically) divulged that after HoD Qanqor asked about it."  (ghunchu'wI', 6/28/2018)
