Not Hebrew, but Classical Syriac. The name is the active masculine participle of the verb to know, thus "the one who knows" or "the knower" (ܝܳܕܰܥ).
It's because זה is the direct object. It is the thing that is being known. Because of that you have to put את before it.
It's יוֹדֵעַ, therefore yodEa
