Anyone can worship anything they want and call it Bob or FRUNOBULAX. 
Those things are totally insignificant. After all, Hindus worship n+1
different gods and call them Shiva and Kali and whatever, without a single
fact that would point towards them even existing! 

In brief: A mortal cannot know the true name of a God, or that the God
exists. Therefore he must a) invent his own name for the God he worships
and b) invent the whole God.

The answer can be nought but "yes".
