I wonder what could be in ancient greek the name of the godess Deferenda.

Could it be : Κατἐνεχτέα ?

Deferunda's name is from the Latin verbal adjective of defero. (deferendus, deferenda, deferendum)

Deferunda is one of four Roman Goddesses known from an invocation performed by the Arval Brethren.

If you are looking for a form of the verb καταφέρω - Ancient Greek (LSJ)

then these are some of the options:

καταφέρουσα
κατενέγκασα
κατενηνοχυῖα

Not sure of how the form you cite came up.

Thank you very much for your help.

Καταφέρουσα, κατενέγκασα and κατενηνοχυῖα are feminine active participles.

Deferenda is an inflection of deferendus  the gerundive (also called the future passive participle) form of defero, which is a verbal adjective formed by adding -ndus, -a, -um to the present stem of  the verb.

The gerundive is always passive that is why I was looking forward a passive form of καταφέρω.

I think verbal adjectives in [ -τέος ] are adjectives of the 1°/2" declensional system derived from some verbs by adding the suffix [ -τέος ] indicating what must be X-ed [ δο-τέος - what must be given], or (as a substantive in the nominative singular neuter) that there is a need to perform the action of the verb: e.g. δο-τέον ἐστί (There must be a giving).

Do you think a closer translation of "deferunda" could be found using a feminine passive form ?

προσενεχτέος from προσφέρω here:

Full text of "Scholia in Euripidem" and here

Full text of "Alexander von Tralles : original-Text und übersetzung nebst einer einleitenden Abhandlung / vol. 2"
so I wondered if Κατἐνεχτέα could exist.

In fact it is προσενεκτέος (see actual page, not OCR).

No need for the breathing (*Κατἐνεχτέα), so hypothetically, it could be Κατενεκτέα.
