Hey rwfresh -
As I understand it from reading the bible, "god's" name as identified as such is Yahweh, or YHVH for the hebrew letters yod heh vav heh as someone else mentioned. The rest are titles ('god' = "mighty one", etc.).
YHVH appears in the old testament whever pretty much all translations say "the LORD" capitalized like that.
Eliyah.com has an article here with a more in-depth study linked, discussing his views on why the name is pronounced Yahweh.
of course the true scholar understands that when the early jews (those that lived during the time of moses) read from the torah/law, whenever they saw the word for god (yawveh), they just skipped it. the name of god cannot be spoken on pain of death.

I've posted a few topics and responses in the religious forums here and thought it would be a good idea to get some feedback in terms of what people believed the "name of God" to be.
Is it a phonetic word? Is it a description of something spiritual? Is it literal (ie: "Todd" or "God").
What do you all think the name of God is.. This term is used throughout the bible.

What other god could this thread be referring to?
