Wiccan Gods & Names of Pagan Gods
Like Wiccan Goddesses and Pagan Goddess names, the Wiccan Gods are derived from many different cultures around the world.
But the majority of the most common names for Pagan Gods come from the Greek and Roman pantheons, with a large dollop of Egyptian Gods and Hindu Gods as well.
This article offers an introduction to a wide selection of Gods invoked by at least some Wiccans. Some are more exotic, others more popular.
But this is by no means a comprehensive collection. The list of Pagan deities could be a list of all known deities!

Wiccan Gods' Titles
Many times you'll hear these used as names of Pagan Gods, but accurately speaking they are more like titles that can be used for multiple Wiccan Gods.
Child God - Title used for Gods in the form of infants, such as Gopala, Baby Jesus, Horus (also Son God).
Father God - Title used for Pagan patriarchs, such as Zeus, Dagda, Odin.
Green Man - Title used for the Earth Gods, such as Tammuz, Herne, Dionysus (also Green God).
Horned God - Title used for Wiccan Gods of the animals or the hunt, symbolizing virility and strength, such as Pan, Cernunnos, Herne, Pashupati.
Lover God - Title used for Gods who aspect as consorts of the Goddess and lover to his devotees, such as Krishna, Cernunnos, Pan.
Sacrificial Gods - Title used for deities whose ritual sacrifice provides life for the people, such as Osiris, Jesus, Adonis, and other Sun Gods and Green Gods
Sun God - Title used for Solar Gods, such as Christ, Sunna, Apollo, Ra.
Triple God - Title used for the godhead as a trinity, such as Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva; God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. (Strictly speaking, the Christian trinity is not a Triple God since the Holy Ghost was a feminine energy, but it's currently interpreted as masculine so I've included it here.)
