Kubjīśāna (कुब्जीशान) is a male-equivalent of Kubjikā.—There are a surprising number of variant forms of the goddess’s name already in the Kubjikāmatatantra. The most basic one is Kubjikā which appears there twenty-one times. Others include Kubjinī (eight times in the [Kubjikāmatatantra]), Kubjī (17 times), Kubjīśānī, Kubjeśī, Kubjeśvarī. [...] The male equivalents are not as varied. We find Kubjīśa, Kubjeśvara and, rarely, Kubjīśāna.
