Yahoo is my god (Google is the devil?)

Did some more thinking about the name of God theory in the previous post...

Aren't there a bunch of names in the sacred literature that are derived from the Tetragrammaton (apparently it was alright to use the Name back then). Or at least the first half of the Tetragrammaton - Yah (or Jah if you are Rastafarrrrian, mon) . If the name was pronounced Hu-hee, how would we explain names like Eliyahu(Yahoo is my God) and Adonijah(My lord is Jah), etc.? Was it Elihuhee ha-Navi?

No, no, no. Google is just your neshama being reincarnated into another body.

Doesn't "theophoric" have a nice ring to it?

Yehu is obiquitous in Tenach as name postfix, as well as prefix: YehoNatan, YehoYachin, YehoYakim (formerly Elyakim.

Towards your previous post, perhaps it was pronounced "ihu", e.g., Elihu.
