1) Akulin (अकुलिन्) refers to one who is “not of a noble lineage”, and is used by the evil-minded Dakṣa to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.29. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] Dakṣa on hearing those words of his daughter looked at Satī cruelly and said thus to her. Dakṣa said:—‘[...] Your husband Śiva is known to the wise as inauspicious. He is not of a noble lineage (akulin). He is the king of goblins, ghosts and spirits. He is excluded from Vedic rites’”
2) Ākulin (आकुलिन्) refers to “those who are agitated (with sorrow)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.34 (“The Story of Anaraṇya”).—Accordingly, as Vasiṣṭha said to Himavat (Himācala): “[...] The sage repeated his request saying—‘O great king, give me your daughter. Otherwise in a trice I will reduce everything to ashes’. The queens, knowing not what shall be done, lamented. The chief queen, the mother of the girl, fell unconscious in the excess of her grief. The brothers of the girl were agitated with sorrow (śoka-ākulin). O lord of mountains, everything and every one connected with the king was overwhelmed with grief. [...]”.
