How, when and why did the name of what we call the Jewish faith, or Judaism, come to be.

It probably wasn't called Judaism before the tribe of Judah existed.

The Jewish faith came to be when God made a covenant with Abraham that God would be Abraham's God, and Abraham's family would be God's people.
