Hm, how many of these actually appear in Lovecroft's writings? Nyarlathotep, Azathoth, Cthulu, Yog-sothot and Shub-niggurath for sure, but the rest? I'm pretty certain that in his actual writings it was Nyarlathotep that went around in a yellow robe posing as a nameless priest in some realm that Randolph Carter stumbled into, not some guy named Hastur. But as the wise proto pointed out, it's pretty menacing to have an easy name like Hastur and THEN tell you that you shouldn't say it.
Lovecroft was wise enough to never describe what his monsters looked like. But still, enough is said about Azathoth to make associations to American Idol almost inevitable...
