The Sumerian religion had many god like for example Anu. Anu was a sky god or god from the heaven/lord of constellation from the Sumerian civilization. He is one of the oldest god of this civilization. Another god was Enlil, god of the wind. The myth of Enlil and Ninlil says that when he was young he got vanished from Ekur for seducing a goddess named Ninlil. Ninlil followed him to the underground and they had a baby, god of the moon (Sin). After fathering three more babies he was allowed to go back to Ekur. He was known as the inventor of a Mattock.

Great post David! Very interesting topic! Did you know that Nammu is another Sumerian goddess? Another goddess was Ki, the goddess of the Earth. The Sumerian's were Polytheistic, they believed in many gods, so there were many other gods. I think this was a very good topic to write about!
