let us take the word - SIVA. If it is split up, we see three
parts -- first 'IS' which means delight, welfare, happiness,
auspiciousness mainly; 'I' represents the created beings and 'VAH'
stands for one who grants auspiciousness. Put together it
refers to one, who grants happiness to the jivarasi. Next is
'Vishnu' and means thereby one who is present everywhere; Sarvah
stands for one, who destroys everything during Kalpantha or
pralaya; Ganesa means the Lord of Pramadaganas a class
of servants attending on Siva; ISA stands for one who appoints
and maintains. And superior to others. All the other
suffixes, like Jagat, Para, Maha, Loka, represent a particular
aspect and its a position; para stands for one who is the most
superior, and lords over the TRIO, being the cause of them. It
further means the protector, creator, destroyer, besides the
personification of TRUTH. All derive from AUM, which is his
first name enshrined in the Vedas.
