Haṃsamiṭṭhu, a name metaphorically combining the two identities of Haṃsa and Miṭṭhu. Haṃsa, we learn, is a pre-Miṭṭhu identity who incarnates as Miṭṭhu and subsequently awakens to a new composite identity called Haṃsamiṭṭhu emerging halway through the frame story (of the Haṃsavilāsa). His wife Bhūlī partakes of a similar dual identity as Haṃsī.
