If mankind as you say need to name to understand. Why would we not need name to understand god? Man was made to need names according to the scripture. Gen. 2:19

If man needs name to bow to and the commandment is not to bow and worship any others. Why not give the one name it is for man to bow and worship. To me this opens the door for a lot of confusions. To just worship god who do you know which god you are actually worshiping? Also how can one take the name of the lord, god in vain if one does not know it?

What name is that?
