Use different header file for WordPress

To display header in WordPress, normally we use get_header() function & it render header from header.php file in our theme.

But if we want to use different header files for different template pages in WordPress, just pass the name of the header file with get_header() function call.

 <?php get_header( $name ); ?>

For example, to call header-blog.php file, we want to call <?php get_header( 'blog' ); ?>.

A good example to retrieve multiple header on multiple WordPress page is given below.

if ( is_home() ) :
 get_header( 'home' );
elseif ( is_404() ) :
 get_header( '404' );
else :
