From Wikipedia:

Jehovah (/dʒɪˈhoʊvə/ ji-HOH-və) is a Latinization of the Hebrew יְהֹוָה‬, one vocalization of the Tetragrammaton יהוה‬ (YHWH), the proper name of the God of Israel in the Hebrew Bible[1] and one of the seven names of God in Judaism.

YAHWEH - YAH-AWEH, OYAH is YAH, Agotun, Agotodaa, Agodaa, Gooda (Goddess) of wind and tornado. AWEH is Araoke, Aramoke (Aramic) meaning friend, love one. OYAH-AWEH, YAHWEH is our mother, consort of Shango.  OYAH, YAH, divine warrior.

From Wikipedia In the oldest biblical literature, Yahweh is a typical ancient Near Eastern "divine warrior", who leads the heavenly army against Israel's enemies;


IYEH ASHE IYEH - IYEH (eternal Life), ASHE (divine authority, command). In modern Hebrew, the name of the Creator is EH-YEH ASHER EH-YEH. In English, it is "l am that l am" but not complete. In Yoruba, the name of Eledumare, who is Olojo (Owner of the days) is Emini IYEH ASHE ti nje Emini IYEH aiyeraiyeh (everlasting), "l am the Eternal Life that divine authority l am everlasting Life". "Ego Eimi" is Greek word for I am, from Latinu (Latin) ede Otu Ifeh would mean Emi ni, Oga Ogo (I am the great One).

YEHOWAH - IYEH-TI-HOWAH-TITILAI meaning IYEH that exists forever. YEHOWAH has different meaning to YAWEH and JEHOVAH but European scholars mixed them up From The Telegraph, Sacred mysteries, 12/1/19: The Hebrew 'ehyeh 'asher 'ehyeh would ordinarily be taken to mean "I am what I am". But a century or so before the time of Christ, the Bible was translated by Jews into Greek for the benefit of Greek-speaking Jews in the diaspora. This translation is known as the Septuagint. It translated 'ehyeh 'asher 'ehyeh as "I am the being", or "I am the existing one" (in Greek: Ego eimi ho ôn).

YEHFEH - IYEH IFEH meaning IYEH the Creator of lle lfeh or IYEH is love. Ife is a homophone word, could mean expansion as in lle lfe "land of expansion" or Ife as in "love".

YEHIFEH is Iyeh of lle lfeh as in God of Israel. The Fon tribe of Ghana would say YEHGBEH but sounds like YEHVEH, IYEH of Gbe tribe of West Afrika.
