Yeah, I played Quetzelcoatl in a play when I was a kid, so I knew about him. That, and as a dark religion in general, the Aztec stuff fascinates me. I once dated someone who was an Aztec reconstructionist, and worshipped Tezcatlipoca.

Here are the ones from Dictionary of Ancient Deities by Patricia Turner & Charles Russell Coulter:
- Qabauil
- Qadesh / Qadishtu
- Qaholom
- Qahootze
- Qamatis
- Qasavara (evil spirit)
- Qat

- Q're
- Quaayayp
- Quajaip
- Quartiana
- Quetzalcoatl
- Quiateot
- Quinkan (dangerous spirits)

- Quork-quork

If any of these seem interesting to you, let me know and I'll send you some information after I get home from teaching piano lessons this evening.

Quaoar - had to pull that one from the list of recently discovered asteroids adopted for use in current Western Astrology. He was named for the Chumash (Southern California First Nation tribe before the Spanish came) thunder god.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qliphoth

The Qliphoth, too - I just remembered them. They are the evil/impure ones, the "shells" (as the word translates from Hebrew) around the Tree of Life. Much of the philosophy and ancient discussion has merged with esoteric thought on demonology.

Whether this one is a Shell or not i not made clear in the article, but the link above did also mention one more "Q" name: Aleister Crowley held that one of the three forms of evil before Samael is Qemetial.

Hebrew has a lot of interesting "Q" words - so does Yiddish.
