What name do you call your God with? Why?

Ok you may not even call it God, but whoever it is that you pray to, or at least you think has all the power and answers to all your problems. Anyway don't turn this into a religion debate, I just came across a friend's topic about praying and I became curious about it. Some people call it the Creator, and some call it Yahweh. My husband calls it Winning Lottery ticket, then those who are fascinated with UFO call it the Head of Supreme Alien race, yet to visit us again. What about you? What name do you call your God with? what's the story behind this name?

We all have a personal name, so why not God? I call him Jehovah or Yaweh,and you will find it in Psalms 83:18 in most Bibles, although it has been removed from some, and replaced with "Lord". The oldest Hebrew manuscripts present the name in the form of four consonants, YHWH or YHVH (Hebrews didn't use vowels at that time), so for easy pronunciation, the vowels have been added. I think it makes Him more personal to us, using His name; we give names to our pets for the same reason.
