Python is a great language for doing data analysis, primarily because of the fantastic ecosystem of data-centric python packages. Pandas is one of those packages and makes importing and analyzing data much easier.

Pandas Timestamp.weekday_name attribute return the name of the day of the week for the given date in the Timestamp object.

Syntax : Timestamp.weekday_name

Parameters : None

Return : name of the week day



Example #1: Use Timestamp.weekday_name attribute to find the name of the weekday for the given date in the Timestamp object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the Timestamp object
ts = pd.Timestamp(year = 2011,  month = 11, day = 21
           hour = 10, second = 49, tz = 'US/Central')
  
# Print the Timestamp object
print(ts)

Output :

Now we will use the Timestamp.weekday_name attribute to find the weekday name.




# return the name of the weekday
ts.weekday_name

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Timestamp.weekday_name attribute has returned ‘Monday’ indicating that the date in the given Timestamp object is ‘Monday’.

Example #2: Use Timestamp.weekday_name attribute to find the name of the weekday for the given date in the Timestamp object.






# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the Timestamp object
ts = pd.Timestamp(year = 2009,  month = 5, day = 31,
        hour = 4, second = 49, tz = 'Europe/Berlin')
  
# Print the Timestamp object
print(ts)

Output :

Now we will use the Timestamp.weekday_name attribute to find the weekday name.




# return the name of the weekday
ts.weekday_name

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Timestamp.weekday_name attribute has returned ‘Sunday’ indicating that the date in the given Timestamp object is ‘Sunday’.
