Ākhyeya (आख्येय) refers that which “could be said aloud”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.21. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] When they [viz., Śiva’s Gaṇas (attendants)] went away and He was left alone with Satī, Śiva rejoiced much and sported with her. [...] Many things which could be said aloud (ākhyeya) even in the presence of many, Śiva whispered into her ears in order to see her face”.
