Please correct me if i am incorrect:

Uttering the name of God is forbidden... why then have Christians been using the terms "Yahweh" or "Jehova" ?

I don't think uttering the name of God is forbidden. It has been said that the actual name of God is unpronounceable or that is forgotten.

It was believed that to know the true name of an entity would enable power and control of the entity (deity) would then be granted by those who knew.

Priests from early Judaism in keeping with this practice are said to have stopped using the original name and have forgotten it.

YHVH is the usual way it is written and since vowels aren't present Western Society can't pronounce it.

This is just a brief explanation and much more can be found about the subject.

I hope that is enough of an answer to your question. Keep looking and you find more about it.
