LaRan: In Etruscan mythology, Laran was the God of War or Thunder.  In art, he was portrayed as a naked young man (!) with a helmet (probably Harley!) and a spear.  Laran's consort was Turan (who would later become Venus (or Laci!) under the Romans).  Laran would go on to be merged with the Greek pantheon's Ares and his Etruscan companion Veive to form the Roman's god of war:  Mars.
