Origin of Tetragrammaton – Huwawa

The origin of “Gods name” YHWH is found in the worlds most ancient writings – the Sumerian Epics of Gilgamesh. In one of the five epics the hero-king Gilgamesh travels to God’s Mountain to slay the Beast. The name of the Beast in original Sumerian is “Huwawa” (not Humbaba)


Huwawa – The Beast – The Age of The Taurus

“Gilgamesh and Huwawa” – the Oxford translation of the most ancient version of the Kish tablets: http://etcsl.orinst.ox.ac.uk/cgi-bin/etcsl.cgi?text=t.

In this article I will show you how to pronounce the so-called “Gods name” YHWH, what it means and where it originally came from.


Hebrew letter Yod is derived from the ancient God named Gudea. (Gods name is well transliterated in Swedish language as “Gud”)

The letter G later became letter J, wich is the same as I, wich finally became the letter Y.

Gud/God = Jud/Jod = Iud/Iod = Yud/Yod

Gudea = Judea = Iudea = Yudea


H+W+H  =  HU+WAW+A  [hu:aoa’]   (Same as HAWWÂH /AVA/AVE/EVA/EVE)

The single “V” was originally pronounced as [vav] and the double letter of “W” is pronounced as [:uao], as in “WOW”.

The letter “H” placed at the end of a word is adding a short [a:] to the letter “Vav”. The letter “H” placed at the beginning of a word though, is pronounced as such .

Hebrew pronunciation: YA – HUWAH

Ancient pronunciation: YE-HUWAWA

Disturbing is it? Yes, to those that have the slightest interest in religion, this is very disturbing indeed, as it shows that the Hebrew God YHWH is not the most high creator of universe, but quite the opposite, The Beast. Not as the beast alone though, but in union with God, as the allegory of “Adam and Eve” or rather, as the “Beauty and the Beast”.

The Beast is simply the female figure Eve, which might be even more disturbing to many. However, the fact that Eve represents the Beast is not a secret, it’s acknowledged by all Abrahamic religions, although, today mostly by Islam. The Abrahamic religions contain not so many female figures, other than whores. (This word, by the way, comes from Nin – hur – saga.)

Huwawa – The Moon Goddess Ninhursaga

Ninhursaga was the origin of the beastly figure Huwawa, who later was called Hawwah, and finally, Ava/Eve. In the oldest Sumerian religion, Ninhursaga was one of the three divine entities (The Trinity), who descended on Earth through the almighty God “An”.

Ninhursaga was called by many names: Nintu, Mami, Inanna, “Mother of all the living” and “The great mother goddess”. But she was also called “The lady (mistress) of the mountain”. She actually lived on “God’s mountain”, and so did the figure “Huwawa”. Now again, God’s mountain is precisely where Gilgamesh travelled to slay the Beast.


Ninhursaga / Inanna / Mami – daughter of heavenly An.

YEWA is the combination of “Yod and Ewa”, and thus the modern “right” way of pronouncing the Tetragrammaton. Variations  of spelling are YAWE, or YAWA, and considering the original letter for Y is actually G, “gods name” would spell GEWA.

Beauty and the Beast – The Forbidden Fruit

Gods firstborn son, Enki, was once cursed by Ninhursaga for having eaten “forbidden plants” in her garden. Now, Enki is of course the forerunner of Adam in this story. The forbidden fruit however, is of another kind, of flesh and bone.

According to Abrahamic religions, and the Sumerian belief, the gods found the daughters of men beautiful, and they had sex with them (or raped them), and thereby the “Son of Man” was born, as a demigod. This is the origin of the “forbidden fruit” concept, not something you eat.

The extremely popular Hollywood scenario of a beautiful woman loving a beast, would that be the original story predating even Adam and Eve? And who would then be the true Beast and who would be the Beauty?

Beauty or Beast

The Beast is also Taurus – The Bull

In another version, on the same Kish Tablets, Gilgamesh is killing “The Bull of Heaven”. It is most likely that Huwawa and this Bull is the same mythological figure, namely the astrological star sign of Taurus.
The age of Taurus was between 4320 BC and 2160 BC, precisely the same period as the Sumerian culture. By killing the Bull, Gilgamesh put an end to the age of  Taurus, and welcomed the age of Aries the Ram (the age of Judah)

The Bull - The Beast

Gilgamesh killing The Beast, the Bull of Heaven, and marking the end of time and the beginning of a new world order, the age of Aries the Ram.

During the age of Aries the scriptures of the Sumerian religion were manipulated to better fit the people of the new world, who took this ancient religion as their very own. They put themselves as gods chosen people to rule over others. Still today people actually believe this to be true, and the game is working well for the self-chosen ones.

God has no name

The Tetragrammaton was never supposed to be pronounced, as it is not a name, neither is it a word. These four letters were originally derived from proto-Sumerian signs, showing the creation of man, as a celebration of The Creator.

The Most High force of the Universe is everything and everywhere, no name in this world would be worthy enough, yet, you can call “him” by whatever name you like. The spirit of God is to be felt within yourself, inside your own bodily temple.

  1. Amma: In the beginning, the Supreme God Amma He who stops at nothing is the intelligent consciousness behind all creation. Emma Ya Tolo God of feminine Essence.

    • Yes, Amma is also very old. This name basically means “The One”, “The Unity”, or “The Supreme Spirit”. Later forms of this name is found in Islam as the “Ummah”, and the Quran tells about “Ummah Wahida” as “One Community”.
      Earlier forms of this name, is found in Sanscrit as “Aum“, which refers to Aumkara, and the first manifestation of the “Brahman”. Aum and An share the same concepts and are practically One and the same.
      (Btw, compare the name Aumkara with the name of the city Ankara; of course they bear the same meaning; there are many posibilities, but I’d say: “Holy Man”, “Incarnation” or “Holy Spirit in the Flesh”.)

  2. what does anu or these 3 gods, representatives of his have to gain from humans and earth at this time?
    or in otherwords what drives it. are they still hear? or just the remains of there spirit (s) of greed power and pleasure.?
    Also to me Jesus seemed to understand true spirituality, to me it is close to the indians aboriginals connection with spirit, but focused on after life or after this system was replaced by the perfect rule of himself from the heavens under the direction of his father.
    he mentions very little about earth or creation and ourspiritualconectiin with it. he is a very confusing character when I try to make sence out of all the connections and explanations of how he is related to the anu and also the creatir of all things, the great spirit.
    please shed some light on this.
    thank you.

    • Difficult questions Jim! Please study some writings about the “Anunnaki gods” and things might get clearer to you. The creation story of the Anunnaki is pretty much the same as the Sumerian religion. Original writings from Sumer are hard to find though, but there are akkadian and babylonian ones.

      (According to the oldest scriptures, the gods created us all to do hard labor, as slaves. I am convinced though, that we have a higher purpose than that!)

      Jesus had great understanding of spirituality indeed, but there were others before him. Please study the world’s timeline and different ages. For each age there has been a new Messianic figure and a new religion. (These ages btw, are the same times and ages spoken about in the Bible!)

      • When I say Jesus, I refer to the messianic figure, and not to any true Messiah. Actually, I don’t believe in the concept of Messiah, as described in any of the Abrahamic religions.
        Instead, the Universe tells me, that the word Messiah bears the meaning “I SHINE”, or, “SHINING SPIRIT WITHIN ME”; and that the concept of Messiah is Symbolic, and represents Man reaching the state of “Godhead” and begins to shine, by his own enlightenment, as anointed by God, from within.
        God will save those who save themselves, from their own egos. These will be the true sons and daughters of God, in the age to come.

      • What do you believe the Tetragramaton means or refers to in it’s earliest form and original reference?

      • Hi Jim! Your question is foreshadowed by a multitude of answers, as there are layers upon layers of symbolic meaninges attached to the Tetragrammaton. Although, the oldest proto-sumerian signs are showing a serpent-like figure, as crawling on the ground, then as standing up.
        This is where the story of ancient reptiles comes from, and also the theory of evolution, but it was probably meant to be a celebration of the Creation of man, and as such, a celebration of the Creator of all life.

    • Hi Jon!

      Of course, IAUA is another way to pronounce the Tetragrammaton, which would be the same as YAWA .
      If you know Arabic (?) you would perhaps agree on that the Arabic way of pronouncing the letters YH would be YEH? In that case, wouldn’t YEWA be a more accurate way of pronouncing the Tetragrammaton?

      Still, the Tetragrammaton was never supposed to be pronounced. It is not a name, neither is it a word. These four signs originally derived from proto-Sumerian language, showing the creation of man.

    • Hi Jana!

      Fact is that the Most High God has no name, other than all those names given by humanity.

      This is a good thing. The Most High force of the universe is everything and everywhere, no name in this world would be worthy enough, yet, you can call him by whatever name you like.

      The spirit of God You feel within You, inside your own holy temple.

      The most ancient “god” we know is the Earth Goddess, called ‘Mem’, ‘Mimi’ or ‘Mami’. She’s at least 30 000 years old, but she got her name much later.

      The oldest name we have is ‘An’ out of the most ancient writings in proto-Sumerian, from around 3 000 BC. The concept of ‘An’ is much older though, as representation of the Sky. ‘An’ might also be an early representation of the Sun (anno/año/an), just like ‘Aten’ and ‘Ra’ of ancient Egypt.)
