Θεός (theos) is Greek for God.

Etymology

Thematicization of Proto-Indo-European *dʰh₁s-, zero grade of s-stem noun derived from *dʰeh₁-. Cognate with Phyrigian δεως (deōs, “to the gods”), Old Armenian դիք (dikʿ, “pagan gods”) and Latin fēriae (“festival days”), fānum (“temple”) and fēstus (“festive”).

Despite the superficial similarity, the word is not related to Latin deus.
