Jehovah is feminine

The following was told to me by Carol, who has been a practicing
witch. She was a member of a coven based in Michigan.

Witches find it interesting that the name Jehovah is formed by the
four Hebrew letters Yod-He-Vau-He. The first, Yod, means "I", the
next three, He-Vau-He, mean both "life" and "woman." The Latin
version of these three letters is E-V-E. In other words, the name of
Jehovah is feminine and it means "I am woman; I am life." Today a
popular chant among witches is based on these ancient letters:
"Io!Evohe!"
