Hittite Mythology

The Gods of the Hittites and Hurrians

HANNAHANNA

Hittite Earth Goddess

Also known as HANNAHANNAH, HANNAHANNAS

Earth Mother Goddess

The mom of all the Hittite Gods.

She is a source of ineffable wisdom and may be connected in some oracular way with the Gulses. She is very opinionated — but did you ever meet an oracle who wasn’t? She also seems a bit temperamental and may storm off in a terrible rage if things don’t fit her point of view.

If this happens, the Earth gets very depressed; cows stop mooing, sheep burst into tears and small children are left to fend for themselves while their parents sulk. Luckily the Earth has a Dark Side and Hannahanna’s anger slowly dissipates into it.

Another thing: she has an amazing magic bee which buzzes around on her behalf. This comes in very handy for finding missing Gods such as Telepinu.
