The Hebrew names for the LORD (Yahweh/Yah/Yehovah), for Jesus Christ (Yehoshuah HaMashiach), and for the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) are used because it is biblically accurate and spiritually authentic to do so. Names have meaning.
Yᵉhôwshua HaMashiach is the Hebrew translation of Jesus, the Christ. The Scriptures say that “His name shall be called Jesus.” (Matthew 1:21 and Luke 1:31). Jesus* is an English translation of the Greek name Iēsous.¹
The etymology or root word of Iēsous is the Hebrew name Yᵉhôwshua² which is formed from two words: Yehovah (the Existing One)³ and yasha³ (to save, be delivered).
Hence, the literal meaning of Yᵉhôwshua is: Yahweh Is Salvation.

For further insight, please study the Scriptures for yourself. Here is a link to a Scripture resource that may be used to begin your spiritual growth through studying and meditating on the Word of God:
I am not a follower of any organization, individual or group which advocates the use of the Hebrew names for the Godhead. I received all of my knowledge by simply reading and studying the Scriptures. The Holy Spirit is our Teacher (John 14:26, Psalm 32:8).
“So then, my beloved, even as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God who works in you both to will and to work, for his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:12-13
