Sorry I am coming in on the tail end of this one, so excuse me if I am off.  But I always wondered why people try to figure out YHWH name based off the other Hebrew names since not all the Hebrew names, that contain the divine in them have the W as the second syllable.  Some have it as the first syllable, like say Joah.  

Also there are other names like Jehu where the W is not a holem/vav but rather a shureq.  Personally, I think the Hebrew names are too inconsistant to try to figure it out.
