In the Greek alphabet there was no letter Q, so there are no Greek gods names that start with a Q.
I couldn't find any Greek god whose name began with and R, except one:
Rhadamanthus - a wise lawmaker, son of Zeus, who became a judge of the dead after he died.
Scamander - god of the river with the same name.
Silenus - an old satyr who adopted and tutored Dionysus.
Tartarus - god of the deepest part of the underworld
Thanatos - the personification of death

The letter W didn't exist in the Greek alphabet, it is a letter which has its origins in the Germanic languages.
I couldn't find any Greek gods names that start with an X (there are only some humans with names starting with an X).
And no names of Greek gods that start with a Y, either. But I just chose to list the whole alphabet, even if the Greek one was different.
Zelus - god of zeal, emulation and rivalry
Zephyrus - the god of the West wind
Zeus - the ruler of all the gods (Jupiter)
