I thought this would be good for beginners in Druidry.
If your a beginner I recommend you study these god/s/esses and choose which ones you would usually work with. Druids also believed in Nature spirits.
Angus Mac Og - (Ireland) One of the Tuatha De Danann, God of youth, beauty and love.

Anu/Anann/Dana/Danana - (an - oo, an - Ann -) (Ireland) Mother earth, goddess of fertility, prosperity, comfort.

Arawn (ar - aun ) (Wales) - God of the underground kingdom of the dead. Revenge, terror, war.

Arianrhod (ar - i - an - rhod) (Wales) - Goddess, Mother aspect of the Triple Goddess. Honored on the full moon, beauty, fertility, reincarination.

Badb/Badhbh/Badb Catha (Bibe/Bibe cot - a )(Ireland) - Mother aspect of the Triple Goddess in Ireland. The cauldron, crows/ravens. Life, wisdom, inspiration, enlightenment.

Bel/Belenus/Belinus/Bellenos/Belimaur (Ireland) - God, closely connected to Druids. Science, hot springs, healing, fire, success, prosperity, purification, crops, vegetation, fertility. A sun and fire god.

Blodeuwedd/Blodwin/Bloncheflor (wales) - Goddess, the maiden form of the triple goddess. Goddess of the earth in bloom, flowers, wisdom, lunar mysteries, initiations.
