Hi David,

You can make DateString give you what you want:

DateString[{2008, 11, 1 + #, 12, 0, 0}, {"DayName"}] & /@ Range[7]
DateString[{2008, 11, 1 + #, 12, 0, 0}, {"DayNameShort"}] & /@ Range
[7]
DateString[{2008, #, 1, 12, 0, 0}, {"MonthName"}] & /@ Range[12]
DateString[{2008, #, 1, 12, 0, 0}, {"MonthNameShort"}] & /@ Range[12]

Hope that helps!
Januk
