Alako

by Micha F. Lindemans
A god of the Norwegian gypsies. His original name was Dundra, and he was sent to earth by his father, the great God. His task was to reveal the secret law and lore to the gypsies. When his task was accomplished he returned to his own realm in the moon and has ever since been known as Alako.

The name is etymologically related to the Finnish word alakuu, "waning moon."
