I've been thinking a lot lately and I came up with a word for the day after tomorrow - Overmorn.

Kinda weird that nobody has thought of it. Tell me what you think about it!

Sorry, Niclas, but according to Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) there is already such a word, although it is considered obsolete and not in daily use at this time:

O"ver*mor"row (?), n. The day after or following to-morrow. [Obs.] Bible (1551).

Etymologies

From Middle English overmorwe, a compound of over + morwe ("morrow").
