Perhaps the original title was El Yahweh Tsebaot * El 
causes an army to come into being* i.e. El raises an army.  
This could then be shortened to just Yahweh.  This of 
course assumes the existance of a Hebrew root HWH.  

On the other handm if I recall correctly, there are 
Egyptian records of a place called Yahweh in Canaan.  
Perhaps Yahweh was named after the place (or vis versa).
