    Yeah, most ancient cultures didn't even have a name for their religion. For Egyptians it was just... being Egyptian. Organized religion spread through a lot of civs but when I choose Egypt I believe very firmly in a Festivus for the rest of us.

    My first religion was Basic Decency. The next game I went with The Force. "Vatican City desires the tenets of The Force."

    Most of the time I'm too lazy to name my religions, so I go with a random standard one, but I did have a few like Discordianism.
    My favorite one so far was a game with many city states where I called my religion "Hugs".

    My standard is Agnosticism, unless I'm playing as a civ that actually uses some of the named religions.

    I called one GOK-DAR:
    GOK = God Only Knows, the answer to any question about how the universe works
    and
    DAR = Die And Rot, which covers any question about the Life After Death.

    Depending on the civ that I'm playing, sometimes if I'm playing the Dutch I pick the name 'Protestantism' if someone else has chosen Christianity already.
    Picked 'Popol Vuh' once as the Maya, and regularly I change my religion's name to 'Atheism'.

    Usually I don't customize the name of my religion (I usually go with Judaism, Shinto or Taoism), but I've had Pastafarianism, Discordianism etc., a few times.

    I think I once named a religion Church of Lasers or something similar...

    I went with the Nine Divines once.
    Also, recently, as Polynesia, Sea Religion, which focuses on Sea and Gold. (essentialy Commerce, but with Faith points)

    At the suggestion of someone else on these boards, my current game religion is "The Clap". Due to my immature sense of humour, any future games will have religions named after other wonderous and probably sexually transmitted diseases.

    If that's your population's reaction, I think they missed the point.

    Made me laugh. Clever one :D .

    This made me lol!

    Arhhh. "Marrakesh wants hugs".

    Is your name Craig by any chance?

    This one made me lol too! :D
