GOD* came about after I saw someone refer in like manner to the current president (at this writing, in early December 2019) and some sports figures. Although it’s meant to indicate someone whose office or standing is shot through with controversy (hence requiring a footnote for fuller understanding), its Divine usage is meant to express that the simple monosyllable “God” likewise requires a footnote — the word doesn’t adequately convey the depth and breadth of What one is attempting to express. (It just doesn’t, that’s all.)
Once upon a time, in 2011 in fact, The Metaphorager aspired each day to feature a different name for that-which-passes-for-God. Some were creative, others traditional, each unique; so we’re going to attempt that project again (though not every day) until we run out of the names we’ve collected so far. If you want to see your favorite here, but haven’t, send it along with the subject line “365 Names” and let us know whether or not you want to be credited.
