My question is: Can the Tetragrammaton at Genesis 3:14 in the Westminster
Leningrad Codex be correctly read as "Jehovah"?

http://www.tanach.us/Tanach.xml#Gen3:14-3:14

At Genesis 3:14 , in the  Westminster Leningrad Codex , the only
occurrence of the Tetragrammaton is spelled [Yod-shewa-heh-defective
holem-waw-qamets-heh].

Is it correct to read this particular Hebrew Spelling as "Jehovah"?

IF THE CORRECT ANSWER IS "NO",
Did the Masoretes ever write that [Yod-shewa-heh-defective
holem-waw-qamets-heh] should not be read as "Jehovah"?
   
The Hebrew word that immediately follows [Yod-shewa-heh-defective
holem-waw-qamets-he] appears to be Elohim [a.k.a. Elohiym].
