Moses, Yahweh and the name Joseph

Many claim that  Joseph is a theophoric-name rooted in the word Yahweh, meaning  “Yahweh will Add” instead of “He will Add”. Now we know that the name Yahweh was first revealed to Moses:

Exodus 6:3 English Standard Version

I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty, but by my name the LORD(Yahweh) I did not make myself known to them.

If the name Yahweh was first revealed to Moses, and Moses came after the Prophet Joseph, how can Joseph be “Yahweh will Add”.?

    An excellent point about the origin of the name “Yahweh” which deserves further research.
