Bast-Mut: Mother or Mama
Bast: Mama
Mut: Mother

Set: Handsome
Heru-wer: Bird

Aset: Great Lady, my Queen
Hethert: Beautiful


Ahahaha, Set must eat that up!

I've cautiously thought of Nebthet as "Nebby" and "Nebby-tet." I don't think she's terribly fond of them. XD

What do you call your gods? Do you say it to Their face(s), or just in conversation?
Em Hotep!

He-thert, HA-thor, HAH-tor, "Mama", yes to Face
Set, Se - TEKH,  (like the sound of thunder crack), yes to Face
Ptah - F - TAH, (like the sound of a hammer hitting an anvil), yes to Face
Thoth, Djehuty, "Dja-hoots", yes, to Face, :)
Horus, Heru, Heru-Wer, yes to Face
Wepwawet, "Wep-py", yes to Face, :)

Why do some get nicknames, while others don't?  I dunno, :)

This is a fun thread!

I don't really have any nicknames for the Gods, but I do usually address Heruakhety as "Great Heruakhety". I can't really remember any more when or where or why that started, but it stuck and just feels right for me now. :)

Sometimes I'll prepend "great" to the other Names as well, but not as often. Other than that, I can't think of any special names that I use regularly.

I call Hatmehyt "Foremost" and Wepwawet "Wepwy".
No nicknames for Sekhmet or Wenut.
Occasionally Seshat is "Lady of the B-Tree" or "Mistress of the Heap"
Ihy is "The Golden Calf". I sometimes pester him about musical stuff.

Saryt's "Praises of Netjer" demo song has got me calling Wepwawet "Weppy-wa-wet."

For Bast/Bast-Mut it's almost always Mom,Momma,Great mother, or Great Lady.

Nebthet and Hethert usually get Nebbie,Hettie, dear ones and beloveds.

Lord Djehuty and Lady/mother Bast. Otherwise I can call them my parents. :)
I started forming a relationship with Ra. I'm tempted to start calling him grandfather, but  I don't know if it's appropriate. Maybe "creator" will be good.

With Bast, I range from "Gracious Lady" to "Mama," depending on the circumstances. ^_^

Mama Bast, Father Djehuty, and Beloved Sekhmet.  I don't often call on the others so I would most likely go formal until told to do otherwise. ;-)

Wesir is usually "Dad," or, if I'm feeling a bit on the silly side, "Jolly Green Giant."  Bast is almost always "The Lady."

I enjoy reading all of these!

I call Hethert my Lady Mother, or just my Mother. I feel weird about using "mom" but I will occasionally say "Cow Mom".

Djehuty I refer to as the Great Baboon, more in my head than to him directly. =) For Tefnut, I always feel compelled to use unofficial/UPG epithets: The Defender, My Shield and Protector.

Everyone else gets their names or normal epithets.
Awdjerethethert, a.k.a. Awdjeret. They/them pronouns, please.
