Na Nach in the Parsha (Vayeitzei)

One reason that Rebbe Nachman did not reveal his name "Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman" openly during his own lifetime. Rather he wrote the Petek after his death is found in Rashi on Genesis 31:42. "The Holy One, Blessed be He, does not associate His Name over the righteous during their lifetimes." I can see from this that "Na Nach" could only fully be completed after Rebbe Nachman's death. (P.S. of course True Tzadikim are called "alive" even after their deaths)

interesting idea. two points to consider.
1. H"Y associating His Name, is referring to the "Elohay" preceding the name of the tzadik, but I can understand that this is part of your idea that Nanach includes that.
2. On Yitzchok Avinu, H"Y did put his Name even during his lifetime - and Rabbainu revealed that his hidden name was Yitzchok.
