  • G-d in Judaism does have several names, some of which we can't pronounce lightly, so that's why Jews call Him "Hashem" (literally meaning, "the name") when talking colloquially about G-d. But the names of G-d have a lot of meaning and a lot of depth. Each one actually refers to an attritbute of G-d and in the Torah, depending on the name used, we can know what attribute G-d was using to act in a certain way.

    The Name of G-d

  • No god/s... thus no names for them

  • Mine revealed herself in various ways over several days. A restaurant name on a tv show, a word on a flyer that happen to cross my path, her name in my mind during a meditation...

  • I don't have a dedicated goddess, though I know some people focus a lot of energy on it. That line of thought doesn't really hold with how reconstructionism works, though some gothi do lean towards one if they focus a certain way.

  • I do not have a matron/patron God/dess. And while I work with many of the lesser Gods, my dedication is to the Great God & Goddess who are simply to old to have a name that you or I could understand.
