Hi Shay :)
Still no hard evidence on my Dodo - Dodona theory :(
However I strongly belive in a relation between Zeus and the verb *zeo* (to live), from which Zoe developed as well favorite Sunday passtime, the Zoo. Zeus in classical Greek also appeared as "Zen" (See Liddell Scott Greek-English Lexicon). Zen also happens to be a noun of "zeo" :)
The plot thickens however because the genitive case of "Zeus" is "Dios" which sounds strikingly like the Sanskrit god Dyeus mentioned by Mike C meaning "sky". Related to the above is also the Latin Deus and its derivatives (the French Dieu etc etc).
More action items: to fit in the word "Theos" (as in theology)in the above context...
