Conversations with a Deity


By Vanamee

I call the creator of the universe and all life within it Oyva. It's a nickname I have for her, or maybe more of a pet name. It's based on a stupid joke, sort of.

Maybe I'll come back some day and put in the while story, but I doubt it. The short form is that it is (or may be) the correct pronunciation of the Holy Tetragrammaton spelled "yod heh vau heh" in the Hebrew alphabet and normally rendered as "YHVH" in the Roman alphabet. This is often mispronounced as either "Yahweh" or "Jehovah". I prefer to mispronounce it as "Oyva".
