Truth is One, but the wise refer to it by various names - Over de Namen

http://www.sathyasai.org/discour/2003/d031005.html
God, who resides in all as the principle of Atma, has no specific name and form. But people attribute various names and forms to Him. Some devotees say all are one. In fact, all names and forms belong to the same God. He responds to the prayers of devotees in whatever form they worship Him. It is a sign of ignorance to consider one form superior to the other.

All names and forms are based on your feelings. God has no differences whatsoever. No one can comprehend the nature of Divinity. Actually, the principle of love that exists in all beings is the principle of Divinity. Love has no specific form. Divinity transcends name and form. Love is God. Live in love. Truth is God. Truth is all-pervasive.

Understand the principle of oneness that is Divinity. The Vedas declare, Ekam sath viprah bahudha vadanti (truth is one, but the wise refer to it by various names). You may call Him by any name and form, but God is one. This principle of unity should be firmly installed in your heart.

The Vaishnavites say that Lord Vishnu is the greatest,
     while Saivites declare that Lord Siva is the greatest of all.
People may speak on the basis of their feelings,
     but in truth there is only GOD and the rest are names.
(Telugu Poem)
