Allah (Islam) is the Arabic word for God, and even Arabic speaking Christian use it. Generally Jewish people call God HaShem (Not sure of the spelling) which means "the name", so they don't really call him by his name, but they don't just call him God either. But those are just the faiths that came from Abraham. All other religions that I can think of that have a god concept use specific names for their gods, not just the title "God"
I was just thinking about this yesterday actually! I was wondering why Christians do not refer to God by his name, instead of just his title.

soyousay: That is why I said generally; sometimes Jews will just say God, especially around non Jews, but most of the time they call God HaShem. My dad and his family are all Jewish.
