Jewish shower thought: alternate name for God

The Arabic word for God is Allah. What if we crafted a Hebrew version of the same name?

Allah is thought to be a contraction of al-ilah, meaning “the god.”

So replace Arabic al with Hebrew ha, and replace Arabic ilah with Hebrew el and you get ha-el. If we then turn it into a contraction like the Arabic Allah where the ‘i’ sound of ilah is dropped, we get Hal.

Alternatively, if we go the Aramaic route, we would get ha-elah which when contracted would be Halah.

Hal and Halah. I don’t know where I was going with this. Goodnight.
