>Correctly it should be *Mahaveh which has been pointed out is more
accurate a derivation from the Hebrew verbstem HWH than the divine name
"Yahweh". I posited *Mahaves as an adaption of the verbal noun into a

the patron deity of the Conlang list-conculture is nonsensical I did not
resist making the name sound more high-falutin'.
