The following names of G-d require special care due to their holiness:

  1. YHWH
  2. Adonai
  3. Ehye-Asher-Ehye
  4. Shaddai
  5. Elohim
  6. El
  7. Tzvaot

Other commonly used names are:

  • Yah
  • Elyon
  • Shkhinah
  • (Ha)Makom ("The Place")
  • Shalom

Since the explicit name (Hebrew: "shem ha'meforash") of G-d cannot be uttered in everyday life, the most common substitutes are "Ha'shem", lit. "The Name", or "Ha'kadosh Baruch Hu", lit. "The Holy One Blessed Be He".
