Yeah. I think Urox/Stormbull is weird or a special case but I like it that way. He/they have a great and important place in cosmology.

I think that this is probably the case but I'd have trouble proving it. There are, according to the Glorious Reascent of Yelm, several suns embodying different aspects of the Solar principle.
