I’ve selected a few I often use:

Bromios : meaning loud, roaring, vibrating (Earth rumbling), lightning, shock.

Khthonios : of the underground, of hades. The deathly aspect of Dionysos. This is a primary form of Dionysos I deal with in my personal cultus.

Lysios : To be released, or releasing.

Dimetor : twice born
