I agree, that is a lovely epithet for Hethert, Rev. Meres!  "She who grins, " :)

I find myself grinning, too. <3

Wesir - Dad, Father, Beautiful One.
Heru-ur - Uncle.
Khepri - Brother.
Hethert - Mum.

I generally refer to the gods as their names. However, despite not being divined yet...I tend to call Heru-wer, Who my attention has shifted more towards this secular year, either "Dad" or by His name. The former is my favorite thing to call Him, though. I get really BIG warm/positive feelings in response.

Edit: Heru-wer is my Dad! And Set is, too!

I was thinking about this a bit lately, and I tend to also be fairly formal and use Their actual names when addressing Them, or on some occasions say Mother & Father (which is slowly becoming more common). But Set is always Set~ :)

Hethert: Hethert, Hethert-Iusaas, Iusaas, Mother.
Heru-sa-Aset: Heru-sa-Aset, Heru, Father.
Set: Set (done and done!)

Em hotep,

I don't know if I've posted to this thread before or not. I like to call Ra Sky-Dad. I feel like it's kind of appropriate. I get distant but fatherly vibes from Him... so... Sky-Dad.

Senebty,

I call Sobek Dad. Father just sounds so formal, but anything else sounds too informal.

Bast is Mom.

Sekhmet-Hethert I’ve always referred to as Lady Sekhmet, since I get more Sekhmet than Hethert.

Amun is Lord Amun, I’m not sure why though. It just happened.

I haven’t had much communication with regards to Yinepu-Wepwawet, so I can’t quite say yet.

Wepwawet is Father or Dad, depending on the formality of the situation. Set is usually just Set. Heru-Wer is either Heru, H-dubs, etc. He seems to appreciate the nicknames. Sokar-Wesir is usually "my Lord" or something along those lines.

Hethert isn't in my lineup, but I've been doing a lot with Her help lately-- wedding planning and new job environment that She loves-- and usually she gets "my Lady."

For most of Them I typically just use their names, however I do have a bit of a history calling Bast mama or mama Bast.
I had worked with Her before, I think that She is a major influence in my life and my getting involved in Kemetic Orthodoxy.

For me, Set has no problem being called "The Man, The Myth, The Legend™". Of course sometimes I just call Him Set, but He was never big on being called much else, and He knows how much respect I have for Him. With Ptah, however, I try to be a little more formal, using epithets sometimes. It's a little more awkward, though, because I have no idea what He prefers? He seems okay with the way that I address Him, though, so I stuck with it.

For Yinepu/Wepwawet "Father(s)" depending on whether I get one or both of Them

Heru Sa Aset: Heru or Heru Sa Aset. I also work with Heru-wer and Heru Behdety, and I call each of Them by name.

I usually call them by their exact names.  It's much easier that way.
