Gaṇāgraṇī (गणाग्रणी) refers to a “leader of the Gaṇas”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.32. Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] from the first half of that cluster of matted hair, rose up the powerful Vīrabhadra, the terrific leader of the Gaṇas [viz., gaṇāgraṇī]. He. stood lofty with two thousand hands blazing like the consuming fire. He enveloped the world all round and towered over it ten inches more”.
