Comments for the name Jochebed

Comments for JOCHEBED:

This is the only name in Hebrew that includes God's name before He gave it to Moses, which suggests that somewhere along the lines, the original name of God (no doubt known to Adam and Eve) was forgotten, replaced by the Caananite names Elohim and El Elyon. Much like the Chinese Shang Ti and Korean Hananim, and Incan Viracocha.
Might I say also that Jochebed is both lovely and powerful as a woman's name?
