Specifically between Neverwinter and Icewind Dale, which religions are common knowledge in the years following 1480 DR?

Common knowledge being that if a player character grew up in this area, they would realistically already know that that deity is a deity and maybe something about their religion.

Example: When asked, the average person in the region may say "Mystra is the deity of Magic" if Mystra and her religion are common knowledge.

The deities in the Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide are known by the common people. Quoting (page 19):

The various races of Toril worship their pantheons, which remain largely the same from region to region, with different cultures and societies emphasizing some deities over others. Although exceptions exist-the gods of Mulhorand, for example-all the gods are revered across all of Faerun.

Particularly the Faerunian pantheon are all known and worshipped by the average person. There is a separate section "New and Foreign Gods", which is also an indication that the Faerunian pantheon is "well-established".
