Like Adonai, HaShem is a very popular name for God and means “The Name.” In Leah’s life as Jacob’s wife, HaShem is the name of God who responds to Leah’s circumstances and blesses her with children. HaShem heard Leah’s prayers. Leah talks of HaShem’s response to her prayers and so she names her children accordingly: Reuben, because HaShem had seen her affliction; Simeon, because HaShem had heard that she was unloved; Levi, because she hoped HaShem would join her husband to her; Judah, because she would praise HaShem.
