That's cute. They make some nice petty gods.

I went a bit more back to basics at one point and created this pantheon
years ago, all based on appellations of the Greek/Roman/other gods, with
some Discworld and further fantasy influences.
It's mostly supposed to be a generic pantheon, but I tried to make the
names as obscure as possible. Except Tyche. Because you aren't supposed
to talk about her.

The Gods of Bithynia
Name - Symbol - Area of Influence
Kasios the Mighty ('The old lecher') Lightning Bolt sky,
thunder, rulership
Basíleia the Kindly Diadem women,
marriage, family
Dawon from the Deep Trident sea, horses
Kidaria the Plentiful Grain
fertility, agriculture, nature, and the seasons
Itonia the Wise Helmet wisdom,
handicrafts, defence and strategic warfare
Adon/Chthon* the Nightly One Grapes/Key wine,
celebrations and ecstasy, theatre
/underworld, dead and the riches under the Earth
Loxias the Enlightened Lyre light,
knowledge, music, poetry, dreams, prophecy and archery
Kynthia the Huntress Bow and Arrow hunt,
virginity, childbirth, archery, animals, the moon
Enyal the Warrior Sword war,
violence and bloodshed
Kypris the Beautiful Rose love,
beauty, desire, sex
Chalkeús the Mute Fire fire
and forge
Enodios the Quick Tortoise
commerce, thieves, and messengers
Hestia the Friendly/Welcoming Hearth hearth,
domesticity, family
Vejovis the Scaled Serpent
marshland and earthquakes, medicine, healing.
Triodia the Arcane Crossroads magic,
magic users, and crossroads
Nomios the Wild Flute wild,
shepherds and flocks, sex, nature, hunting and rustic music
Anantios (Anancy) the Sly Spider web
spiders, trickster, knowledge
Tyche ('Luck','The Lady'**) Coin luck,
gambling
* one god who personifies two different aspects, this is a widely-known
mystery of his cults
**'the One-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named-(no!-the-other-one)', general consensus
is that if you call to her she will go away

I'd have made "Cosh" the god of blunt force, what with a cosh being a
blackjack. Anyone who's played ever a thief character should know that
;-)

Then name the god of money "Dosh", since it's slang for cash anyway.

"Tosh" might have been a better name than "Josh" (tosh: (n) silly
nonsense, twaddle, balderdash)

And perhaps "Slosh" for the God of the Waves?

"Posh" - NG goddess of fashion?

"Quosh" - NE god of suppression?

"Wosh" - CG god of cleanliness?

"Shosh" (or perhaps "Hosh"?) - NN god of sneaking and silence?

I have to admit, I don't get the 'Rosh' reference. Or 'Losh' for that
matter (a derivative of laws perhaps?)

Rosh for rash, a common side effect for allergies
Losh eludes me, maybe a pun on loss, like... losing files?

Remember that time I made up a pantheon of 32 gods (12 major + 20 minor)
for a solo game?

http://tilde.town/~dozens/clericthief/journal.html#pantheon

They also all have variations of the same name.
Only "Patrick" instead of "Josh."
