L-rd (YHWH): The name “YHWH” is probably derived from the Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”, with a third person masculine y-prefix, equivalent to English “he”.Itis connected to the passage in Exodus 3:14 in which ‘God’ (Elohiym: [the] Magistrates, Great, Mighty – ones, etc..) gives ‘his’ (‘iysh: the steward’s, etc..) name as אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה (Ehyeh asher Ehyeh), where the relative pronoun asher (“that”, “who”, “which”, and “where”) is between two instances of the first person singular imperfect of the verb hayah (“to be”).

As a qal (basic stem) verb inflection, it could mean “he who is, who exists”.
