[Accusative case of the name] Zeus. But [sc. differently-accented] di=a [means] glorious [in the feminine]. Also [sc. attested is] di=os, [meaning] glorious [in the masculine].

Likewise, variously, in Hesychius and other lexica, and cf. also the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 1.14, where di=a occurs. In fact, both words come from the same root *diw-, referring to the bright sky (seen also in Latin dies "day"). See LSJ at web address 1 and web address 2.
