Maybe the name "Judah" is a combination of the name of G-d spelled yud -hay and the hophal past tense (hay vav dalet hay), and means "G-d was praised." When his mother gave birth to him, she praised G-d, so G-d was praised. Maybe when the words were combined, one hay was dropped.
I am just guessing.
