I mainly tend to stick to Yinepu, Ra, Set and occasionally Sobek, however, the lesser known ones have a lot of respect from me, they do a lot for us despite not being commonly recognised for it.

Em hotep!
Lesser known deities to me are so appealing and beautiful. They hold so much mystery and yet are right in front of us all the time, at least that's how I feel....
And ever since I dyed my hair green I've been getting some serious Wadjet vibes and I'm loving any interaction with Her.
Heqat and Sobek are also close to my heart.

I recently found out about Shezemtet, who I'd never even heard of before! From what I was told, She's a form of Sekhmet, and sometimes Bast. Does anyone know anything about her? I'd like to start working with her.

I'm already beloved of Mafdet, but I have a huge interest in Hatmehit after finding out about her recently!

She is a usually lioness headed goddess who is linked to the ritual girdle. I enjoyed learning about her and have a soft spot in my heart for her.

I recommend Henadology articles for finding out about the lesser known names.

For me as far as lesser known deities go, I've only communicated with a couple; Bes and Amunet.  But it also seems to be that my father Heru-sa-Aset, while He has a rather large part in Kemetic theology, He doesn't seem to appear as much in RPD's, even as a beloved.  At least that I've noticed lately anyway.  So far I only recall (please correct me if I'm wrong) one other person being claimed by Him since I had my RPD in 2016.  And I only know of one other who has Him as a parent.  Also my beloved Set while well known, isn't exactly the most popular god around because of the Contendings, and the general public of course views Him as the typical god of evil and such, but He's so much more than just the god of chaos.  Anyway, that's my two cents.

My Dad is pretty uncommon (I’m the only Geb kid so far, but He has popped up as a Beloved for some other people!)
I’m not surprised because He’s pretty vast. I’ve had experience with Shu and had a relationship with Tefunt for a while as well. Been judged towards Hapy too actually. There’s plenty of other Odd Gods I’ve tried to ‘hit up’ as it were, but I’m not usually successful lol

I'm not KO, but I'm a devotee of both Sobek and Heqet. Heqet especially has so few folk worshipping Her - She's such a wonderful, kind and loving goddess, I love Her so much <3

As for Sobek, words fail to describe His greatness. My heart overflows when I think of Him. Aaand I'm going to go work on some poetry for the Sobek devotional...

She very much is. ;)

I also noticed that Heru-sa-Aset doesn't have many children or show up often as a beloved. It's always nice meeting others though~!

Though not "little" in any sense, I have a great fondness for Tem. He always seems so very close, yet so very far at the exact same time. I usually pray to Him (as Netjer) unless I'm focusing on a specific Name, but it did make me sad He never shows up in an RPD separately (but technically does in everyone's).

I only mention Him because He definitely has a certain "persona" to me (though still overwhelmingly abstract too). I usually relate Him to the Evening Sun, as a Creator, and usually in an anthropomorphic state (with His fancy beard) when He stand on His own. The awesome perk is that He always reminds me that everything is Him, and He is everything. So talking to any of the Names is talking to Him, and to treat all people & things (including yourself) with care because everything is part of His flesh. Sort of the idea to try not to hurt others, because you are also hurting Netjer or making Him/Them sad.

It just gives a really nice fuzzy feeling inside that He's all around us, and cares so deeply to be all the Names for us too~ I wasn't sure if anyone else had Him in a similar way? I guess He might be considered popular, but not talked about much on His own. :)

The Ra in my RPD lineup tends to express Himself to me most often in the form of Ra-Atum, so I interact with a syncretism of Atum often. Like you, I was a bit sad He could not be part of my RPD directly, but He is still very much present due to His connection to all the other Names! I get Him as a sunset god, but also as the sun in the Duat, or in the timeless space of the Nun. He is a creator god, and is the potential for everything that exists, or that might exist, being brought into reality through thought, word, and action. He is a transformative god, and very much about inert things becoming alive, active, or animated. (He also expresses Himself as Ra-Wesir.)

I'm always to pleased to hear that others interact with Him, too. :D

I am here to say I have very similar experiences with Atum!! They are probably the Name I am closest to next to my Father and I very much experience them as a Creator and Father of all if that makes sense? Like they feel very calming and vast to me and even thinking about them makes me feel happy and slightly more connected to everything as well as cared for. I REALLY relate to getting them in connection with the timeless space of the Nun, the first time I interacted with them I actually got a strong mental image of them sitting on a throne smiling amid a vast space, which I feel like was probably the Nun.

I can definitely relate to wishing they could've shown up in my RPD but even though I usually need like 30894021 confirmations anyone, even one of the Names, actually likes me (thx mental illness) Atum's love is just so Present every time I think of them that I dont mind not having a written sealed confirmation they care because the feelings are just so There. The only other name I feel that way about is my divined Father <3

In the past year, my Father has most often appeared to me as Ra-Atum-Heruakhety or Atum-Ra-Heruakhety (there seems to be a subtle difference!) - which very much makes sense to me, since I also have Tefnut and Shu in my lineup.
