As far as I know, “zeu” is any god, while “Dumnezeu” is the Jewish/Catholic/Orthodox God.

I think the best way to look at is "Dumnezeu" being "father"/"heavenly father" so more specifically the Christian god. With "zeu" being the more generic "God". Not that God isn't also used in Christianity for only one entity.

Shouldn't the word Moon be written with a capital letter?

Why couldn't "Zeul lunii" refer to "the god of the month?" Doesn't "lunii" mean both "of the month" and "of the moon?"
