Lightbulb god the father

In modern Christian practice God is consistently an analog of Father.
Quote:
Our Father who art in Heaven
What are the closest (sounding) words to "heaven"?
Haven (from the Empire).
Heathen (as in "heathen gods").
"Heathen" is apparently related to the word "heath" as in (inhabiting) open country or scrub/commoners' land and is Germanic in origin from Heide (as in hide or hidden).
