I'm starting to see some differences, you keep quoting a lot of authors, and I'm quoting the bible, with independent support from other sources to support Jehovah's name.
The greatest indignity that modern translators render to the Divine Author of the Holy Scriptures is the removal or the concealing of his personal name. His NAME occurs in the Hebrew text 6,828 times as יהוה (YHWH or JHVH), generally referred to as the Tetragrammaton (literally meaning "having four letters"). By using the name "Jehovah," we have held closely to the original-language texts and have not followed the practice of substituting titles such as "Lord," "the Lord," "Adonai" or "God" for the divine name, the Tetragrammaton.
Today, apart from a few fragments of the early Greek Septuagint where the sacred name is preserved in Hebrew, only the Hebrew text has retained this most important name in its original form of four letters, יהוה (YHWH), the exact pronunciation of which has not been preserved. Current circulating texts of the Greek Septuagint (LXX), Syriac Peshitta (Sy) and Latin Vulgate (Vg) substitute the mere title "Lord" for God's unique name.-See App 1C.
The text located in the U.S.S.R., namely, the Codex Leningrad B 19A, used for Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS), vowel-points the Tetragrammaton to read Yehwah′, Yehwih′ and a number of times Yeho*wah′, as in Ge 3:14. The edition of the Hebrew text by Ginsburg (Gins.) vowel-points YHWH to read Yeho*wah′. While many translators favor the pronunciation "Yahweh," the New World Translation continues to use the form "Jehovah" because of people's familiarity with it for centuries. Moreover, it preserves, equally with other forms, the four letters of the divine name, YHWH or JHVH.-See ad under "Jehovah."
Adonai is the plural of Adon, meaning "Lord, father, master, or owner" . This is also a title, look it up in any encyclopedia or internet. So we don't know Greek or Hebrew, no vowels, Jehovah's name like all other names, Jesus, Satan, etc., were all translated to the best of human ability, the only attack or deltion was to GOD's name Jehovah. There is nothing wrong with using titles, such as father, master when speaking about our God, but we must know what his name is, and it should be in verses that he directed to be in.
Why is a name so important, look at the same scripture you used, the KJ bible, says, and gives support to what we have always preached.
2 Kings 23:4And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of Jehovah all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the grove, and for all the host of heaven: and he burned them without Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel.
