Don, from Latin dominus, is an honorific title used in Iberia and Italy.
Although originally a title reserved for royalty etc, it is now often used as a mark of esteem for a person of personal, social or official distinction, such as a longstanding community leader.

In Celtic British mythology, Dôn is the parent (presumably father) of Gwydion and Arianrhod, but originally a female figure.
It may be that this otherwise uncharacterized figure was a major deity (神) of continental Celts.

Don 不會譯 "上帝", 香港人講上帝, 多是 refer to 基督教聖經上的 God
單一個字, 無上文下理難譯, Don 有多個解釋
如果與 mythology 的 deity 有關, 譯 "神"Source(s): Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, http://www.thefreedictionary.com/
