What do you call your gods?
« on: April 05, 2016, 03:21:03 pm »
Em hotep!

I was browsing through the LAGG thread earlier and started thinking about the things I call my gods that aren't derived from antiquity - and I thought it would be fun to share them. What do you call your gods? Do you say it to Their face(s), or just in conversation? I know I've seen some creative nicknames floating around!

I call Wepwawet "Himself", and Sekhmet-Mut "Herself". I call Wepwawet "The Jackal" (which actually does come from antiquity). I don't actually have all that many creative nicknames, now that I think about it!

I call Amun-ra "ram dad, hidden dad, sun dad." Set is "disco dad, red dad, storm dad" Sekhmet is..Sekhmet lol  or redlady, or "yes ma'am lol" The Heru's get called well, The Heru's.  I don't have that strong a bond with them unlike my parents. I shorten Heru-sa-aset to just Heru-sa. And you can't really shorten Heru-wer much more.

I am glad that I am not the only that calls Sekhmet "yes ma'am."

Father mostly... dad only sometimes. Depends if he's striking me as being formal or not at the time.

I call Sobek-Ra Father or crocpop. Hethert is Momma Hethert or cow mom. Yinepu is the jackal man. I don’t really have any extra names for Set, maybe I should come up with something for him?

Collectively, "My NTR," "NTR-Mine," "Team Me."

Set is pretty much exclusively Set (usually "HEEYYYY SET!"), but I think I've called him Red once or twice. I'll refer to him as my father/parent, but I don't usually address him as such. If I'm being Super Formal I might say "Red Lord" or "Lord of Storms," but my favourite Sepithet (get it?) is "Great of Strength."

Wepwawet is "Weppy," Yinepu is "Anpu." Collectively, they are The Jackals.

Heru-sa-Aset is "Heru-sa," Heru-Wer is "Heru" or "Heru-Wer," but "H-dubs" does amuse me.

Wesir is "O."

I like "Mama Taweret" for Taweret, but I don't actually address her all that much.

I usually call them by their names, sometimes with "Lord" in front if I'm feeling formal.

I do sometimes, when talking about Him to others, jerk my thumb upwards and say "Him up there" when referring to Ra, and that seems to go over fine. :P Then again I find it hard to imagine anything that could upset Him, He's always come across to me as really chilled out and mellow.

If I'm feeling really formal, though, I sometimes refer to Ra as "The Radiant Lord", which also seems to go over pretty well.

Bast is usually Bast-momma or something similar. MamaBast, etc. I never actually call my beloveds by anything but their names when I talk to them, but I do talk about them as uncles. I've lately started thinking about Wepwawet as the wolf man, and Amun as rambo, but not to them.

I prefer to call Aset "Mother" because my physical mother is amongst the dead and I make offerings to her and call her "mom" so it confuses them up.

Outside of Their actual names, which I often use...

Set, when formal: Father, Great of Voice, Lord of the Northern Sky, He Before Whom the Sky Shakes, Red Lord, other epithets on occasion.

Set, when not-so-formal: Father, Dad, Big Red, Thunderdad (going with me as Thundercat), Most Metal of the Gods (a recent joke we shared, because iron, and music, and it was funny at the time I swear. *coughs*)

Bast, almost always formal: Mother, Lady, Lady of Joy, Light-bringer, Devouring Lady, Defender of the King.

Heru-wer: General, Sir

Hethert-Nut: Beautiful Lady, Great Cow, Starry One, Mehet-Weret

Heqat: Grandmother, Musician in Hermopolis, Beautiful One, My Lady
