    I don't know why Christians would say that, since Jehovah is just the Hebrew name for the one true God they themselves worship.

    What can they say?  Their own literature admits there's no record of the word before 1270.

    "The first recorded use of this form [Jehovah] dates from the thirteenth century C.E. Raymundus Martini, a Spanish [Roman Catholic] monk of the Dominican Order, used it in his book Pugeo Fidei of the year 1270 C.E." (Aid To Bible Understanding, 1971, p. 884-5).

    "One of the remarkable facts, not only about the extent manuscripts of the original Greek text, but of many versions, ancient and modern, is the absence of the Divine name" (NWT, 1950 ed., Foreword, p. 10; the same quote is found in the Awake magazine, 1957, January 8, 25).

    "Due to religious disuse, the original pronunciation of the Hebrew has been lost . . . there is no way of knowing what pronunciation is correct" (WT, December 1, 1983, p. 5).

    The bottom line is that JW's got the word from Christians, also called Trinitarians.

    By definition, "trinity" aka Godhead refers to Father, Son and Holy Spirit. If we believe that then we also believe in Jehovah God - the Father.
