Polytheistic religions do this all the time and many times the domains shift between the variants.

Aphrodite was like this. In fact, her Spartan variant, Aphrodite Areia, was a war goddess.

Aphrodite Areia: Make love not war? What? Forget that nonsense, I do both!

There is also Aphrodite Urania and Aphrodite Pendemos. Pendemos is the lustful, impulsive, and vindictive version that most people think of when they hear "Aphrodite"
