Yahweh

 

(also Yahveh, Jehovah), the name for god in Judaism. The name “Yahweh” was formed from the tetragrammaton YHWH, whose precise pronunciation is not known. Inasmuch as uttering the name was taboo, the tetragrammaton served as an ideogram for the word “Lord” (rendered in Greek as kyrios). The Masoretes vowelized the tetragrammaton to “Jehovah,” the name adopted by Christian theologians in the 14th century. According to its grammatical structure, the tetragrammaton, which is derived from the Hebrew verbal root hyh (“to be”), can mean either “eternally existing” or “creator of all that exists.” The exact meaning is debatable.
