  • Orion.

  • No. I like the ring it has. And the death part doesn't have to be negative. He's god of after life and represents rebirth. I guess it just depends on how you look at it.
    As ruler of the dead, Osiris was also sometimes called "king of the living", since the Ancient Egyptians considered the blessed dead "the living ones".

  • Wikipedia isn't accurate for facts.Not even allowed to use it in school. I did a paper on Egyptian religion and gods. He is the god of the after life, the chief deity of death. Personally both names are a bit much for me,  but I'd go with Orion.  But if you like it htat's what matters!
