    I try never to say the name, if I do I use one of our apostate alternatives, like Jehoober.

    I am amazed at many pronunciations that are imported from you guys across the pond to here in the U.K

    Coelin (as in Powell) , Mareyeah (as in Carey) and fertle for fertile, I could go on,..... and on, and on.

    I went from a country where they pronounced it "Yeah-hugh-hwa" to a place now where they say, "eh-hoe-bah".

    Now I'm too superstitious to say the name so I remove the superstitious title of adonai from the tetrogrammamegatron and i get... i get... I dunno. Sigh.

    Yah a we he, sounds about right. or it could be yoho wuhu if your fancy is tickled.....

    He doesnt exist beyond the imaginings of superstitious men whatever he's called.

    ''Yah-ho-vah' El-o-heem''

    with the accent on the last sylable of God's personal name.

    Tha Yord to tha Hay to tha Wow to the Hay is how I like to say my Daddy Jah' name when Chee-Hoe-Fvah (My wife's South Seas pronunciation of His name) starts to grate on my ears.

    I thought it was pronounced Gee Hoover and sometimes you'd include his middle name; namely Gee Edgar Hoover.

    Or have I mixed up deities?
