Dear Liz,

I overlooked one question of yours. I am now at my office without having 
access to the French edition of the book. But I think his conclusion is 
that the pronunciation of the name was close to YE-HO-WA(H).

What does he conclude, how is it pronounced?
What does it mean?
Or, do we have to buy the book?
