Interesting, you are right about the gods and goddesses being many faces of the same thing, obviously different cultures see things differently.

Opposite god/good you could have chaos where we could put Loki, Pan, Cernunnos, Satan etc.

With christ/chris you could out the other 'shining ones' such as Lugh, I am sure there are others.

I am never sure though where Buddha goes, he seems to be god and 'shining one'? Any ideas?

You have your chaos goddesses as well, although they are not seperated so easily as the gods are. Although Kali, Baba Yaga, Sekhmet, Lilith, Cerridwen, Coatlicue, Hecate and Sheila Na Gig are obviously the chaos side and welcome their darker sides.

And then there are the vegetation goddesses Blodeuwedd, Demeter and Persephone, are they 'ordered' goddesses or chaos goddesses or maybe you can't devide them like this afterall.

Still its fun trying!
