God The Father
"'Diawas Pithair!'" (p. 233)
"'...Zeus the Father...'" (p. 236)
The Latin name Iuppiter originated as a vocative compound of the Old Latin vocative *Iou and pater ("father") and came to replace the Old Latin nominative case *Ious. Jove is a less common English formation based on Iov-, the stem of oblique cases of the Latin name. Linguistic studies identify the form *Iou-pater as deriving from the Indo-European vocative compound *Dyēu-pəter (meaning "O Father Sky-god"; nominative: *Dyēus-pətēr).

Odin is Allfather.
"The Father and I are one." (See here.)
Here is a strong common theme in theistic religion.
