  It was Alt who first pointed out that the emergence of Yahwistic names in the biblical onomasticon started with Moses. If memory serves, he included Yokebed as the first of such  names. That this indeeed is a Yahwistic name, as mentioned by Yigal, has been recognized by many.

   (Actually, I think that
Yokebed - "YW is glory", might also be Yahwistic).
