Alternative Spellings

Due to possible mistranslations of the word an alternative spelling of the word is:

Speculated Etymology

The Tetragrammaton is not attested other than among the Israelites and seems not to have any plausible etymology. The Ābaray scriptures explain it by the formula “Ehye ašer ehye” (“I that I ”), the name of The Most High revealed to 𐤌𐤔𐤄 (Mashah) in 𐤔𐤌𐤅𐤕 (Shamauat) 3:14. This would frame Y-H-W-H as a derivation from the Ābaray triconsonantal root 𐤄𐤉𐤄 (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”, with a third person masculine y- prefix, equivalent to English “he”, thereby affording translations as “he who causes to exist”, “he who is”, etc.

Although this would elicit the form Y-H-Y-H (𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄‎), not Y-H-W-H. To rectify this, some scholars proposed that the Tetragrammaton represents a substitution of the medial y for w, an occasionally attested practice in Biblical Hebrew as both letters represented matres lectionis; others proposed that the Tetragrammaton derived instead from the triconsonantal root 𐤄𐤅𐤄 (h-u-h), “to be, constitute”, with the final form eliciting similar translations as those derived from h-y-h.

Modern scholars, however, consider “Ehye ašer ehye” to be a folk etymology; a later theological gloss invented at a time when the original meaning of the Tetragrammaton had been forgotten.

𐤀𐤄𐤉𐤄 (AhaYah) and 𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄 (YahaYah)

The name 𐤀𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Ahayah or AHYH) comes from combining the prefix of 𐤀 (alaph) and 𐤄𐤉𐤄 (hayah). 𐤀 (alaph) is the first person singular in Ābarayat. Hayah means to “be”, “become”, and “exist”. When you put the two words together for the name you get “I ”, “I exist”, or “I who creates existence”.

The name 𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Yahayah or YHYH), repeats the name 𐤉𐤄 (Yah) twice but also comes from combining 𐤉 (yad) with 𐤄𐤉𐤄 (hayah). How it is written makes it a third-person singular of 𐤀𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Ahayah). When you put the two words together for the name you get “He is”, “He be”, “He exists”, or “He who creates existence”.

The name 𐤀𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Ahayah) is mentioned prominently only once in scripture as 𐤀𐤄𐤉𐤄 𐤀𐤔𐤓 𐤀𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Ahayah Ashar Ahayah) when he was speaking directly to 𐤌𐤔𐤄 (Mashah). However, 𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Yahayah) is mentioned 20 times alone in Genesis 1. You can visit the Ābarayam Arauakah Version of the scriptures to see the mentions of 𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Yahayah) that were covered up in the translations. Click here for the AAV Scriptures of Genesis 1.

There are two important things to note about this name. The first is that in modern Hebrew the ו (vav/waw) and י (yod) can be easily confused depending on the person’s handwriting. Thus, the name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (Yahauah or YHUH) could be our heavenly father’s name or a mistranslation. The second is that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (Yahauah) isn’ used until Genesis 2, whereas 𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Yahayah) is the primary name used in Genesis 1.

In Arabic, the name Yahya means “He lives” and is derived from Hebrew and Aramaic. There is also a Levitical priest named Jehiah, which translates to Yahyah. In Persian, Yahya is a title of address for a senior village or community elder.
