Question about God

Does God have any other names than, well, God? Does He have a "true" name? I was really curious, I know some people say YHWH (I think that's how it's spelled?) or Yahweh, but are we sure that it's His true name or something. Or is His name just "God"?

Yes..He has a whole bunch of names...I prefer to think of them as nicknames...He answers to all of them. I don't think anyone knows His real name...all I know is that He calls Himself "I Am"

I'll see if I can find a list with the meanings for you...

Yeah, like "Allah" and something else, lol.
Yes, he answers to all of the names. And, yes, I don't think anyone knows His real exact true name. Maybe we will when we get to Heaven! ^^

Thank you.

well... since we have God's word given to us by God, then we can know somethings truly about God.... if we did not have the Bible then speculation is all we would ever have. But thank God we do not have to speculate!! So when the bible uses all these names for God, as each one merely describes some aspect of who God is and what He does, then we can know that these names truly are correct names for God. Are these all the names for God? I doubt it. But simply because we do not possess all the knowledge (all the names) there is to know about God, it doesn't follow that we therefore know nothing truly about who God is.

I think maybe (like you have said), that these are names that some how describe God - because He is all of these.

Whatever His name is, I'm sure we'll find out one day. :D

I was taught as a young boy that God has one true name, one that He Alone knows.

Because it can only be spoken in complete holiness, only He knows.

I always thought that was interesting.:)

Exodus 3:13-15 (NLT)
But Moses protested, “If I go to the people of Israel and tell them, ‘The God of your ancestors has sent me to you,’ they will ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what should I tell them?”God replied to Moses, “I Am Who I Am. Say this to the people of Israel: I Am has sent me to you.”
God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel: Yahweh, the God of your ancestors—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.
This is my eternal name,
my name to remember for all generations

Tetragrammaton (from the Greek τετραγράμματον, meaning 'having four letters, refers to the Name written with four letters, namely יהוה, the name of the God of Israel, as preserved in the original consonantal Hebrew Bible text. These four letters are usually transliterated YHWH, YHVH, JHWH or JHVH in English.

Of course Hebrew text even today does not contain the vowel sounds so no one knows the name of God. All we have is the tetragrammaton (YHWH) to which someone added the vowels from Adoni which produced the word Jehovah.

He has many Names in scriptrue but Jasher hit the nail on the head. When Moses asked God whom shall I say sent me God replied with this:
Exo 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

I AM- YHWH or Yayweh - the self existant eternal God.

So one that basis YHWH or as we pronunce it Yahweh is His definitive Name.

Later thranslations rendered it Jahweh which in turn was rendered Jehovah but a careful study shows there was no letter J in the Hebrew alphabet.
