An Archer God
The Change Series by SM Stirling.
Given the importance of archery post-Change, maybe the Wiccans need an archer god? Or they might deify their own Aylward the Archer who is also an expert bowyer although he denies that this is a master-craftsman's trade.
Names recall ancestral trades. In our local Telephone Directory, I have found:
uncountable Coopers, Fletchers, Masons, Millers, Palmers, Shepherds, Smiths, Taylors and Wrights;
Gardeners with different spellings;
And there is a local Baker the Butcher.
