Jews don't write the true name of God, even when teh Temple stood the high priest only pronounced this name once a year. Instead, the word is written with the Hebrew letters, yud-hay-vav-hey, read as Adonai. Pretty obviously, when you have people outside the tradition reading Jewish liturgy they pronounced the written phonetically and came up with Yaweh, taking it literally as God's name.
