    No,

    Paul tells us, God made Jesus' name above those in heaven and on the earth.

    (Philippians 2:9, 10) “9 For this very reason, God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every other name, 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend—of those in heaven and those on earth. . .”

    David under inspiration tells us - Jehovah's name is even above the heavens.

    (Psalm 8:1) “8 O Jehovah our Lord, how majestic your name is throughout the earth; You have set your splendor even higher than the heavens!”

    God's name is not Jehovah.  That's a false name, created by applying the vowels of the Hebrew word for Lord, Elohim, to the consonants for God's name (Ancient Hebrew did not record vowels) and by mispronouncing some of those consonants.

    Scholars guess that the correct vowels applied to those consonants produce Yahweh (but it's still a guess, albeit a very educated one). 

    Most Christians believe that Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and God the Father are all God, just three parts on one thing.  Therefore they can all be termed Yahweh. They aren't separate entities according to that view.

    He is God, so "Jehovah" means Him, His Father, and the Holy Spirit, though Old Testament Jews didn't realize that.

      "Jehovah" is a made-up word from 13th-century Catholic clergyman Raymundus Martini after he was commissioned to translate the Koine Greek Bible to Latin.

    Checking Psalm 138:2, no. But the Word of God is above all the names of God. And, Jesus is "the Word that became flesh, and dwelt among us." God magnified His Word even above His own name, whatever God is called by any conceivable religion or cult.

    "Jesus" means "Yahweh's Savior".

    • You are talking about the same person, that is, Jesus Christ is God in his own Deity as a man. Therefore, Father, Son, Holy Spirit!

    Jesus is God.

    ..............................

    • And then, the name Jehovah is not the original name of God, it was transformed by the so-called Witnesses of the Guardians Tower?

    Do you actually think that God is looking for fame?
