    It probably depends on your reverence for your G-d, if you were devout, you may not have used the word Zeus! as jews don't use the tetragrammaton and say ha Shem in its place.

    Then you have the African practice of using a name as a way of setting an hope or aspiration for the person. So I know of a Prosper, Favour.
