I think this is a great suggestion!  So now one possible pantheon is-

Aule - god of conlanging
Glossapoeia - Muse of conlanging
St. Hildegard de Bingen - patron saint of conlanging

Hmm... Tolkien clearly patterned the Valar after the Norse gods, yet Aule is not a god but an "angelic power" in Tolkien's phrase. So I see why you chose
the word "deity".
