This page has no references. I am also unclear as to whether this is a list of deities FROM proto-Germanic paganism or someone's proposed list of deities FOR neo-pagan activities - I think the latter, but the wording is unclear. --Brianyoumans 03:54, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

If this page is useful (which I'm not sure it is), there should also be ASCII-ized versions of the names. --Brianyoumans 03:57, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

What do you mean, ascii-ized? This is the common spelling for reconstructed proto-germanic... 惑乱 分からん 17:11, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Ascii means in normal type that are on English keyboards without accent marks.Goldenrowley 05:12, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Cleaning up[edit]

1) **Lohho is the reconstructed form for Old High German. The protogermanic form should be *Lukan. But since this god is mentioned only in Norse Eddic Literature, he can not be considered as Protogermanic. 2) *Frījō is in Old Norse Frigg not Freyja, which would be *Frauwjō.

Please don´t change this article, when you are not good in the subject of Proto-Germanic language! One who knows about, may see easily, that *Lohho is an impossible form and he does not mix up Frigg with Freya etc! --Al-Qamar 16:07, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Reference Info[edit]

A bit hard to locate this stuff in the reference works due to an inability to link directly to the entries, and it's hard to make edits without understanding the article:
