I remember reading somwhere (and I don't remember where) that someone had
suggested reading YHWH $MRN at Kuntillet Ajrud as "YHWH keep us" or "YHWH
our keeper" (YHWH shomrenu) rather tham "YHWH of Samaria" (YHWH Shomron).
however there are actually two inscriptions there that mention YHWH TMN
(YHWH Teman), which is either a specific place in Edom or just "south". It
is a strange site.
