Tetragrammaton is a term that comes from the Greek τετραγράμματον, meaning "four letters". It refers to the Hebrew theonym (Hebrew: יהוה‎) transliterated to the Latin letters YHWH, and in Judaism is considered to be a proper name of the God of Israel used in the Hebrew Bible. The most widely accepted pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton (YHWH) is Yahweh, though Jehovah is used in many Bibles, but in few modern ones.
