I don't know about "University Press of America" but L'Harmattan is a famous
French Publisher with his 20 books a week, mostly on human sciences.  This
publisher is well renowned for giving a voice in France to foreign cultures
from all continents. I have never heard of G. Gertoux before, but I know at
least an exegete publishing at L'Harmattan, one of the TOB translators.

Mr. Gertoux features in his website http://gertoux.online.fr/ a very small
press review of his book (La presse en parle), where one journalist writes
that the final advice of Gertoux on the Name is Yehouah.  But have a look on
the section "avis de specialistes", where scholars from all horizons give
their advice on his book (many of them do it in English).
Gertoux is a Hebraist with an engineer formation : cf.
