When one does more research, they find that there are a multitude of Biblical names of places and people–even names of kings–that have meanings that center around God. These names begin with Jeho in English (Yeho in Hebrew) and some even include God’s whole name: Jehovah.

Jehozabad = “Jehovah has endowed”
Jehohanan = “Jehovah has graced”
Jehoiada = “Jehovah knows”
Jehoiachin = “Jehovah establishes”
Jehoiakim = “Jehovah raises up”
Jehoiarib = “Jehovah contends”
Jehonadab = “Jehovah is willing”
Jonathan or Jehonathan = “Jehovah has given”
Joseph (Yĕhowceph) = “Jehovah (Yehovah) has added”
Jehoadah = “Jehovah has adorned”
Jehoaddan = “Jehovah delights”
Jehozadak or Josedech = “Jehovah is righteous”
Jehoram or Joram = “Jehovah is exalted”
Jehosheba = “Jehovah has sworn”
Jehoshabeath = “Jehovah is an oath”
Joshua or Jehoshua = “Jehovah is salvation”
Jehoshaphat = “Jehovah has judged”

Jehovah-jireh = “Jehovah sees”
Jehovah-nissi = “Jehovah is my banner”
Yĕhovah tsidqenuw = “Jehovah is our righteousness”
Jehovah-shalom = “Jehovah is peace”
Jehovah-shammah = “Jehovah is there”

And these are just the people who were important enough to be mentioned in the Bible. Doubtless there were other people that also had these names. We cannot changed God’s name to Yahweh without changing every one of these names–and even the name of Jerusalem itself! (Jehovah-shammah = “Jehovah is there”)

One last thing—in the KJV, God is referred to as ‘Jah’.  This is a CONTRACTION.  When you have a contraction, you have taken letters out of the middle.  To wit:  J ehov ah –> Jah.

Newer versions incorrectly translate this as ‘Yah’ because they have CHANGED the J (Hebrew ‘Jod’) to a Y!!  This is part of their plan, to change the Tetragrammaton, in order to attempt to change God’s name to Yahweh in the newer (corrupt) Bible translation.  To see what the Hebrew alphabet really is, look at the section headings of Psalms 119 in an AUTHORIZED King James Bible.
