Sorry, this is slightly off topic but the Latin Deus is the 
cognate to the Greek Theos, not Zeus.  The Latin cognate to 
to the Greek Zeus is Jupiter (Jovis Pater or "Father 
Jove").  Jovis and Zeus both derive from the Indo-European 
root workd *dyeus* meaning Sky or Shine, they were both sky 
gods.
