History of Judaism Part XVII — "Hashem"

Something that fascinates me, that I don’t get much information about “from the inside” is how Judaism has evolved over time. For example, the fact that the Torah was originally written in Libona’a script (aka Paleo Hebrew), but during the Babylonian exile the Jews switched to the Aramaic alphabet.

Does anyone know, at what point did Jews stop saying God’s proper name(s) and refer to Him as Hashem “The Name”? Was this a practice during the Exodus, or did it appear later, during Temple times?
