The name Yad Vashem means "a memorial and a name" - referring to the  words of the prophet Isaiah: "Thus saith the Lord, ... Even unto them  will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better  than that of sons and daughters: I will give them an everlasting name,  that shall not be cut off" (Isaiah 56,4-5).
