It's kind of silly to think of "God" being the name of Moses' god if you don't have a monotheistic bend (or "Allah" being the name of the Muslim variant, as that's just the Arabic word for "god", isn't it?)

That's not really true. He/She has several names: YHVH, Elohim, and Adonai are some of them.

They are just all translated into English as "Lord" and "God."

You're supporting my point. "God" ain't the best it's a title (capitalized in haughty, monotheistic tradition). But if I'm ever referencing Moses' lord/god as "Elohim", rest assured that I'll be capitalizing it.
