The days of the week are mostly named after Roman deities/heavenly bodies in countries that speak Romance languages. Sunday = Sun, Monday = Moon [Lunes (Lunar) in Spanish), Martes (Mars), Miercoles (Mercury), Jueves (Jupiter), Friday was named for Venus and Saturday for Saturn. In Spanish, these last two days were renamed for Christian influence. In some parts of the Roman Empire the same system was adopted but Roman gods were replaced with local gods. Mars was replaced by Tiw or Tiu the god of war, thus Tiu's Day; Mercury with Odin/Wotan/Woden, thus Woden's Day; Jupiter with Thor, thus Thor's Day; and Venus with Frigga/Freya, thus Freya's Day. For some reason Saturn Day was left alone.

In Scandinavia only Sunday (søndag) and Monday (mandag) have kept the original references to the Sun and Moon. The names of the other weekdays are: tirsdag (Týr), onsdag (Odin), torsdag (Thor), fredag (Frigg/Freya) and then lørdag. Lørdag is Saturday but instead of referencing Saturn it means the day to do laundry.

I can see your point, as one would think a bomb would make a big explosion, right? But nobody said English idioms make any sense. :-) A "bomb" in this sense I think refers to its downward trajectory and overall negative outcome rather than its explosive impact – for instance, a stand-up comic might have "bombed" on stage if nobody laughed at his jokes (to further complicate matters, if he had a great show and got a standing ovation, it would be said that he "killed it"!), or if a student did very poorly on an exam, when asked how he did, he might lament that he "bombed".

It's both, and there are also commercial coffee companies and shops with Java in their names. We have a Java Dave's in our town where we go to get a "cup o' java", and that is also a Benjamin Moore paint color which my niece used for an accent wall. Using java as slang for coffee is pretty common in my area.
