I like "I AM WHO I AM" for which i have my own personal interpretation which sounds " none of your business " and i believe God actually meant that. Knowing how God was annoyed with Israelites i find it entirely plausible... I do believe God shows similar character trait in Job40- 41, basically saying know your place...

I don't like YHWH because im not jewish, God or Lord is good enough for me to use in prayer.
You're obviously free to have your preferences and it's really great that you pray.:)
Not everyone has the need to be closer to God like being close to a best friend, some people are not comfortable with closeness and would rather address someone with respect and distance.
For those of us that are comfortable with closeness, addressing God respectfully by his name is very nice to do.
God wants us to be close to him and be friends but if you're no inclined to do that then no one can force you, not ever Yahweh.

exodus 3:14 tells us the name of God and that doesn't translate to Yahweh, jehovah, yehovah, YHWH etc...
Yes but that is just one scripture that also explains what his name means. The following verse 15 mentions his name. In a good Bible translation you will see God's name Yahweh, Jehovah, Jah.
One also has to think how would to translate a Hebrew name into English.

Yes but that Name was a direct answer as to what His Name was.

Hovah means disaster/mischief and yah means act of defiance so it’s easy to throw out those names out

Why do we never see I AM anywhere else in the Torah & Prophets?

Also, if it’s easy to throw “yah” out, why is “yah” in the name of many of the prophets?

My guess would because His Name was taken out of the Bible. That’s why you see Lord and God instead of any specific name

Does yah mean act of defiance when you look it up? I don’t believe the Creator names Himself after defiance (yah) or mischief/disaster (hovah). Do you?

All of the things which the people of all the different religions call Him, whether it be Shiva, Buddha or Allah, are Holy Names.
Thank you for sharing. I am not deeply familiar with Hinduism but I do that Shiva is a deity, and in Hinduism there are like thousands of deities. (If I'm incorrect please let me know) so Shiva is the main deity but not the real True God, The Creator Yahweh.
Buddha was a man and not a God. He himself did not wish to be worshiped.
Allah is a title, not a name. Unless Yahweh means Allah.

Different religions have different beliefs and different Deities or gods. Not all reflect the worship of the ALMIGHTY nor do they follow his commandments.

His name is all together YAHWEH and not separated like that. The Tetragrammaton is not broken up.
YHWH means he causes to become, not he causes to not become.
He created all things, so how would he be a destroyer?

Be careful where you get your information as it sounds satanic. Satan is the destroyer of everything, the earth, the humanity, the Faith in God. He's the one that brought about the defiance and rebellion. He's the creator of mischief and badness.

Do you already know that the 4 Hebrew letters YHWH are in the Masoreric text over 6,000 times? Surely you are already aware of this.

We see Lord and God in English bibles where the Hebrew text says the letters of YHWH. Most translations even say this in the front.

Do you have any kind of reference to a Hebrew word “yah” meaning act of defiance? What about words like HalleluYAH? Does that mean praise act of defiance, Or does it mean praise YAH? Who is YAH in Psalm 68:4? Was David wrong?

Joel didn’t say “whoever calls on the name of EHYEH ASHER EYHEH shall be saved”. He said “whoever calls on the name of YHWH”. Was he wrong?

What does Exodus 34:14 mean? Is God’s name actually “Jealous”?

Because the deceiver was very busy getting the scribes to take God's name out of the Bible translations so that people would be even more ignorant and more removed from Yahweh.
The scribes claimed to have removed Jehovah's name from the Bible "out of respect". In reality, they did the opposite of what God wanted, for his name to be known to all mankind.

It sounds like he is slyly pushing Freemason doctrine. They think “YHWH” in the Tanach was Ha’Satan, and not God.

As a commentator highlights under this video:
"In this scene he says Ilahi not Eli
Arabic and aramaic =Similarities
In arabic=Ilahi lima tarakhtani
Aramaic=Ilahi lama sabahtani"
If you listen carefully Prophet Jesus peace be upon him is begging the Creator Elahi or ILahi.
"Why have you forsaken me or why have you left me?"
Dear ones, I sincerely hope that you also rely on the One God and ask of him, beg him and entreat Him and not His Creation.
He is sufficient enough to deal with your sins.
"Surely Allah does not forgive that anything should be associated with Him, and forgives what is besides that to whomsoever He pleases; and whoever associates anything with Allah, he devises indeed a great sin.}" (Quran 4: 48)

"Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful." (39:53)

There are different schools of Hindu philosophy. Some believe Vishnu to be Supreme God, others Shiva. Vedanta regards the worship of any deity as a means of approaching Brahman i.e. Supreme God, but they don't consider those deities to manifest all the qualities of Brahman.

Buddha was a man and not a God. He himself did not wish to be worshiped.
When you get into the Mahayana there are other ways of perceiving Buddha, though you are essentially correct. But in Tibet for example there are the Tantric Deities i.e. forms of Buddhas or the Bodhisattvas. It's true Buddha said not to be worshipped but there is nonetheless quite a lot of Devotion to Him involved in many forms of Buddhism.
Allah is a title, not a name. Unless Yahweh means Allah.
I think the Muslims consider Allah to be a Name, not a designation like we would say "God". Am I wrong???

Ok, you can think that, I think differently.

It is one of the names of God and a designation.
There are others such as the Most Merciful or Most compassionate etc names and attributes:

Prophet Jesus peace be upon him is begging the Creator Elahi or ILahi.
"Why have you forsaken me or why have you left me?"
We also say 'My God' or 'Ilahi' when we are begging God here is an example in this song:
same song different version no subtitles:):
