Tetragrammaton -- The formula by which a vicious demonic desert blood-god of the ancient semites identified itself to Moses. It must truly have been terrifying to be a people 'Chosen' for special attention by such a monstrous entity, as the woeful narrative of the Old Testament makes clear.
The ancient provenance of YHVH is either a storm-god or a god of destruction and fire, with a taste for blood and sacrifice.
