    GOD - The English word God is identical with the Anglo-Saxon word for “good,” and therefore it is believed that the name God refers to the divine goodness.

    I'll go with Randy's findings. TU!
    Oddly, the exact history of the word God is unknown. The word God is a relatively new European invention, which was never used in any of the ancient Judaeo-Christian scripture manuscripts that were written in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek or Latin.

    According to the best efforts of linguists and researchers, the root of the present word God is the Sanskrit word hu which means to call upon, invoke, implore.

    It is not related to good which was originally a neuter noun in early German.
    God is not a name, it is a title. Anything can represent a god, even people, in this day. On a bible prophecy board, I attended for nearly 10 years, there was a user that was an astute atheist. he advised that he would come up with a god called; "the flying spaghetti monster god".

    yeah, you can have at it, but when you reach that dark spot in your life, when food does not fill the void, most seek something greater than what they can form with their own hands.
