Normally I call them by their names.
But I do have some informal ones too lol Bast is always Momma Bast. She's always had this motherly aura when I work with her. Sobek is Croc dad and Anubis is Mr. Jackal

i tend to call Them my Lords and Ladies! i'll refer to Them by name sometimes but the Lord/Lady title tends to slip out more.

Em Hotep!

I call them My Guardians, my Gods, my Parents, My Guidance, also my Lord and Lady as well (left over from my really old Wiccan days), I call them my home, and my family. My resting and Safe space.

Ra is Father (when in super formal situations) Bird Dad or Birb Dad if He’s in a playful mood. Yinepu-Wepwawet is Father in formal situations or sometimes Jackal Dad. My Beloveds I refer to as Aunts.

I've never really said them out loud, because I didn't want to potentially offend Yinepu or not give Him proper honors...BUT, I've got quite a few nicknames for Him in my head.   ;D   "Dog Dad"/"Dog Da", "Yinubis", "Dog God"(it makes me happy since it's a palindrome).

But I tend to call Him "Anubis"; although it's His Greek name, it's just more familiar and comfortable to me and He's communicated that He's okay with it.


Now Sekhmet I've never actually TALKED to.  I just admire Her from afar since I'm too awestruck and shy to approach. But anytime I think of Her, I think of that meme where folks reveal a beautiful thing and say "S H E".  That's basically how I feel towards Her.   ::)

Khepera is Father most of the time, but sometimes I will say Dad.  When I address Him directly though, it is always Father.  I find that Serqet-Aset doesn't really like the term "Aunty" so I tend to call Her by Name, or Lady/Mistress.  Djehuty likes Uncle, but when I am making offerings I tend to call Him by epithets that come to mind at the time, usually in reference to wisdom and/or the moon. 

As you can see, I tend to be very formal, heh.
