Language, Religion, and an information quest (or somesuch) [Mildly OT]

Well, I'm not going to get into why, but now I'm trying to come up with
a good word that expresses "God" or a supreme entity, etc, and I was
wondering how all of you came up with that word/words for your conlangs,
if you even have them? IMO, this is one word that is a very defining
word for a culture, is how they treat this word. Like, is there a single
word to describe a deity, or different words depending on the type? I'm
on an information quest right now, and I wouldn't mind some
suggestions/advice/etc. on a good way to come up with a word to
represent this, or even what your word/words are.

Thanks a lot :)
