The Rig Vedic rishi asks: Kasmai devaya havisha vidhema? To what god shall we offer our oblations? And again, Ko dadarsha prathamam jayamanam? Who saw the first-born?
The first mandala of the Rig Veda brings out this idea most beautifully:
They (the men of wisdom) call him Indra, Mitra, Varuna, Agni, and he is the heavenly, noble-winged Garutman. The Reality is one, but sages call it by many names; they call it Agni, Yama, Matarishvan (and so on).

Just as a woman can be looked upon differently by different people: mother, by her children; sister, by her sisters; husband by her spouse, etc.Rig Veda 1.164.46 tells the same truth:Indram Mitram Varunamagnimahuratho divyaha sa suparano garutamaan |
Ekam sadvipro bahuda vandyatyagnim yamam maatarishwaanmaahuh ||
They (the men of wisdom) call him Indra, Mitra, Varuna, Agni, and he is the heavenly, noble-winged Garutman. The God is one, but sages call it by many names; they call it Agni, Yama, Matarishvan (and so on).
