The Wikipedia article on 'Chinese names for the God of Abrahamic religions' claims that:
Protestants originally rendered [the Tetragrammaton] as Yéhuǒhuá (爺火華, literally "(old) Gentleman of Fiery Magnificence," cf. English "Jehovah").
I would love to know if this were true, because it sounds quite strange and funny at the same time. However, there are no specific citations for this claim, and I can't find from basic googling any English language information backing up this claim. (I don't speak a word of Chinese, so it's possible there's ample evidence on the Sinophone internet that I haven't seen) Is this actually true?
