Baali was used for pagan gods. Why does God have so many names like El, Yahweh, etc? They are Canaanite names. Thank you for your response.
El was just one god in the Canaanite pantheon. Baal was another. The Hebrews came to follow El and over time the others were variously ignored or demoted to demon status.
While Jehovah God certainly has many roles, and corresponding titles as a result, his name is and always has been Jehovah:
"I am Jehovah. That is my name;
I give my glory to no one else." - Isaiah 42:8
Joseph, but Jehovah comes from Yahweh which is a Canaanite deity. The Hebrews adopted Canaanite gods as their own and then just picked one as their true god later. That is Yahweh.
