Why Do Trinitarians Exalt the Name “Trinity” Above the Name “Jesus”?

In the Scriptures, God is given many names.  These names become multiplied in Christ.  Moreover, the Scripture says:

“…God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”  – Philippians 2:9-11


“…He raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in the one to come.”  – Ephesians 1:20-21


“…these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.”  – John 20:31


“…there is salvation is no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved.”  – Acts 4:12

If then these are the sorts of things that the Scriptures say about the name of Jesus, how do men come along later and say, “No, the name ‘Trinity’ is more important than that, because if you don’t declare God to be a trinity you cannot be a true follower of Jesus.”  They are exalting the name “Trinity” above the name that the Scriptures say is above every name.
