Durgādatta (दुर्गादत्त) (19th century), author of Vṛttamuktāvalī belongs to Mithilā as Maithila is prefixed to his name.

India history and geographySource: archive.org: Personal and geographical names in the Gupta inscriptions
Durgādatta (दुर्गादत्त) is an example of a name based on Durgā mentioned in the Gupta inscriptions. The only name based on Goddess Durgā is ‘Durgādatta’. The Gupta empire (r. 3rd-century CE), founded by Śrī Gupta, covered much of ancient India and embraced the Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Derivation of personal names (e.g., Durgādatta) during the rule of the Guptas followed patterns such as tribes, places, rivers and mountains.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
