You have asked an unanswerable question. Different people have different
answers depending on their ideologies, and there is not enough evidence from
all sources to answer which is the correct answer.

There is no consensus on the linguistic, historical and cultural origins of
YHWH, otherwise known as the Tetragrammaton because of its four letters.
There isn´t even a consensus on how it should be pronounced.
