I wouldn't restrict the attributes of HaShem to those pertaining to Elohim. There are hundreds of Names/Titles of HaShem, and each Name provides insight into His "attributes." Even the Name YHVH is most likely a wordplay on the Hebrew verb hayah.... Ultimately, of course, HaShem is beyond our understanding, so we are constrained to use metaphors and analogical reasoning.

Shalom
