ahih asher ahih makes meanigless phrase, and not a good name to convince Hebrews with.
Moses never told Aaron or Israelities that name.
James noted an interesting point, absence of the expected 2ms apellation.
3:14 makes sense if ahih is a regular verb, not a name. And that sense, refusal to state the name, is congruent with Moses not telling the name.

I would love to hear any objections on the grammatical grounds. Could ahih in 3:14 be not the name? Purely grammatically, no exegesis. Anyone wants to voice an opinion?
