Primum enim diem a Sole appellaverunt, qui princeps est omnium stellarum ut idem dies est prae omnibus diebus aliis.
I have: Truly they have called the first day away from the sun "the prince who is of all stars" in order that the same day is before all other days.
I don't know if the subordinate clause's meaning is to be taken in quotes or how the first ablative is used. thanks:)
Appellaverunt is perfect tense, which can be translated as a simple past tense. I think that sounds better, but that's a personal opinion.
A, ab also has the meaning "after." I think that would make more sense than "away from."
I would translate the sentence as:
Truly they named the first day after the Sun, who is the prince of all the stars (just) as the same day is before all other days.
