Enlil's name is the generic god word for ancient mesopotamia
here is the etymology
His name is a reference to the air/atmosphere, the sky, the wind, the breath
but the hebrews dd not distinguish between the air/sky and the heaven/sky.
furthermore the name JEHOVAH is from the roots,
HAYAH (EA (pronounced AYAH) who is ENKI) which means to be, to exist
HAVA (Enlil) which means to breathe, air, spirit, sky
therefore JEHOVAH IS BOTH EN.LIL and EN.KI
in fact in the akkadian text, ENMERKAR AND THE LORD OF ARRATA, it is ENKI who confuses the languages at the Tower of Babel.
and let's look at BAB.EL. Babel is from BABILU which is from KA.DINGIR.RA
it means GATE OF THE GODS.
The BAB prefix is really water gate (named after ENKI'S Abzu (the abyss, bottomless pit, which has a gate. and is why he's also called EA, the god
of water. Technically his titles are god of earth and water, lord of the abzu/abyss). He's the fish man. think about that one for a bit.
