Someone reading from the Torah gets the singing note (trop) wrong for one of the names of Hashem, in a manner which changes the meaning of the verse. He then needs to go back and repeat the name of Hashem to gets the note right (O Ch 142 (1) MB [4]).

How should he do it? Can he repeat just the name with the right trop or must he complete the possuk and then repeat it with right trop (as I have heard on occasions)?

(See also this parallel question.)
