If you are interested in the subject, I would strongly recommend you to get 
professor Gertoux's book:
"The Name of God Y.eH.oW.aH Which Is Pronounced As It Is Written I_Eh_Ou_Ah: 
Its Story"

You can get it on Amazon, just search for "Gertoux". Mr. Gertoux is a 
specialist on the Tetragrammaton.
The book is available in English, French, Danish and Italian.
