Common/proper noun functions of theos

The noun theos appears to function both as a common noun (a title), and as a
proper noun. As a proper noun it appears to be used only as the Father's
name in the NT. Other nouns seem to have the same dual role: pharaoh, dad,
father, pastor, messiah. Anybody have any observations?
