May I add to Jonathan's point that Shaddai names are attested across the ANE 
during the late bronze age, but fade out of use.  If I may borrow a rabbinic 
sort of reasoning YHWH connotes the Merciful God, but the use of Shaddai 
within later writings (Ruth, Joel) in conjunction with the verb shadad, 
points to the severe side of God.

cheers,

Julie :)
