( One interesting detail is the 3rd person masculine HaWaH in
Ecclesiastes

For what it is worth, Gerard Gertoux's conclusion 
is that God's name written "according to its letters",
is "Iehoua" and is pronounced "Yehua".

However, Gerard Gertoux ackowledged that the purpose of his writing his
book,
was to try to convince experts that "Yehowah" was more likely to be God's
name than was "Yahweh".
