However, something I don't see addressed too often is the fact that there are hundreds of forgotten gods out there. There are Gods from civilizations long lost to us and Gods assimilated into other cultures and Gods trounced out by invasive religions.

A lost God or even a very obcure God wouldn't/couldn't immediately come to the minds of other Pagans or turn up in a basic reference search.

This makes me think of Senua, whose votive offerings were discovered a few years ago in a field in Hertfordshire by someone with a metal detector.  It made me wonder if she'd had any modern followers who did not know her name, who perhaps assumed she was Minerva (the statuettes were Minerva-like) or more of a Boann-like figure as someone's got a theory that a river may have been named after her.  Or maybe she was just one of those goddesses who some people end up sensing and don't name at all.
