    Well...whatever the name, I would want it to be one that made cultural sense with the other names used in the book. Without knowing that, it would just be a shot in the dark.

    Could you supply the name of some other gods in the story?

    Well, what are the names of your characters? Are they based on any particular human culture? Would I have to consider that they are not the culture who invented these gods, (such as the maybe the romans borrowing the Greek gods or such). Is there any sound or feel you are trying to capture?

    If you want, I could just throw out random names, but that would be no different than a random name generator I could find on the internet.

    for now thinking mixture of things with mortals maybe the old spelling of names like magyk for magic and so on
