Where Did The Name Jehovah Come From?

The name Jehovah is a less common vocalization of the Tetragrammaton,- from Greek τετραγράμματον, meaning "four letters" יהוה (YHWH), the proper name of the God of Israel in the Hebrew Bible which has also been transcribed as "Yehowah" or "Yahweh". [1]

While YHWH is the most common transliteration of the tetragrammaton in English academic studies, the alternatives YHVH, JHVH and JHWH are also used. [1]

יְהֹוָה appears 6,518 times in the Masoretic Text , in addition to 305 instances of יֱהֹוִה (Jehovih). The Masoretic Text was copied, edited and distributed by a group of Jews known as the Masoretes between the 7th and 10th centuries CE. The earliest available Latin text to use a vocalization similar to Jehovah dates from the 13th century and possibly earlier. [1]

During the 3rd to 2nd centuries BCE, the pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton came to be avoided, being substituted with Adonai ("my Lord"). [1]
