The Names of God

The Holy One of Israel has been given many names and titles.  Those of us in English speaking countries tend to call Him by only a few, but there is a rich history of names that God has given Himself.
You may notice that the name "Jehovah" is not seen here.  The name Jehovah is a poor translation of the Hebrew word translated as YHWH in English, which is the most holy name for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. 
The Hebrew Aleph-Bet contains no letter "J" and proper names which we pronounce with a "J" really start with "Y" in the Old Covenant.  For instance, Jerusalem is really Yerushalayim and Jesus is actually Yeshua.
