  • Tome it's a statement of praise and a commitment to honor God's holy name; to always use it respectfully and to never take it in vain.

  • It means sanctified or to be treated as holy. "Hallowed be your name," is part of the Lord's prayer. It is petition, or request, to God to take action by cleansing his name of reproach. See also Ezekiel 36:23.

  • Because the name of G-d is holy...not to be taken lightly. http://www.jewfaq.org/name.htm
