Bhūmija (भूमिज) refers to the “son of the Earth” and is used to describe Bhauma (the planet Mars), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.10.—Accordingly, after Śiva spoke to the Earth (Dharaṇī):—“[...] The child acquired the name Bhauma (son of the Earth). He attained youth immedately. For a long time he worshipped lord Śiva at Kāśī. By the grace of lord Śiva, the son of the Earth [i.e., bhūmija], acquired the status of a planet. He went to the heavenly sphere beyond the region of Venus. O sage, thus I have told you the story of Śiva and His separation from Satī. Now listen to the story of His performance of penance”.
