If you want days of the week without typing each individualy

Needs["Calendar`"]

Table[DayOfWeek[DatePlus[DateList[], i]], {i, 0, 6}]

If you don't want to depend on Calendar Package then use

Table[DateString[DatePlus[DateList[], {i, "Day"}], "DayName"], {i, 0, 6}]

This should give you an order list of day name based on the day you run it.

As for Month Name

Table[DateString[DatePlus[DateList[], {i, "Month"}], "MonthName"], {i, 0, 
11}]

Short Month Name

Table[DateString[DatePlus[DateList[], {i, "Month"}], "MonthNameShort"], {i, 
0,
11}]
