@SethJ Yes - but the letters Yud Kei (and Vov Kei, my Rav tells me) create a name of Hashem on their own.

@SethJ Yes it is. But I don't see your point. BTW the Gr"a did not say any "leshem Yichud"s.

BTW, the marginal note in Sukkah refers to two other Tosafos. Shevuos 35a s.v. b'alef dales agrees with Tosafos in Sukkah that is that without intention for the name is not a problem. Avodo Zoro 18a s.v. hog'e says that one should not mention even the letters yud hei - and does not speak about intention.

comment Am I allowed to wear my Pebble Watch on Shabbat?
The question seems to be a special case of this question judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/8725/… "What is a watch one can wear on shabbat?". See the discussion there.

I would certainly like to know the law outside of Israel (as well as in Israel).
