I don't know about 'most'. This depends on where you live. In the United States calendars begin on a Sunday, but not all over the world. Slavic languages have Monday as the first day and Monday is used all over Europe as the first day in the week.

Sunday was named as first day of the week in Jewish culture and Hebrew, Arabic, Greek, and Portuguese names for the days follow this thinking.
