Exodus 3:14...right? In order to understand, one has to go back to the origin of words and their meaning...God’s reply in Hebrew was, ʼEhyeh ʼAsher ʼEhyeh'...some translations render this as “I AM THAT I AM”...it should be noted that the Hebrew verb hayahʹ, from which the word ʼEhyehʹ is drawn, does not mean simply “be"...it means “become,” or “prove to be” so the reference here is not to God’s self-existence but to what he has in mind to become toward others...

The New World Translation properly renders the above Hebrew expression as “I SHALL PROVE TO BE WHAT I SHALL PROVE TO BE"...Jehovah added,“This is what you are to say to the sons of Israel, ‘I SHALL PROVE TO BE has sent me to you.’”​ Exodus 3:14

This is not meant to change God’s name, but only an additional insight into God’s personality...“This is what you are to say to the sons of Israel, ‘Jehovah the God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name to time indefinite, and this is the memorial of me to generation after generation.” Exodus 3:15; compare Psalm 135:13; Hosea 12:5

The name Jehovah comes from a Hebrew verb that means “to become,” and a number of scholars suggest that the name means “He Causes to Become” so this definition well fits Jehovah’s role as the Creator of all things and the Fulfiller of his purpose...only the true God could rightly and authentically bear such a name...

Cougarbear: Well thought out. But, does it really matter, The Lord was asked his name and he gave it. All names have a "meaning." What you really should be aware of is that Jesus Christ is that very same "I AM." John 8:58, "Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM. Jehovah God came down off his thrown at the right hand of his Father, Elohim to be born, atone for our sins, die and be resurrected, fulfilling the Law of Moses. Those who are baptized by authority live by the new law of Christ fulfilling the law of Moses. If we keep our baptismal covenants, we need not participate in old rituals contained in the Law of Moses. No more circumcisions and no more food laws contained in the Torah. Those things are fulfilled in the Law of Christ.
