Putravara (पुत्रवर) refers to the “foremost among the sons”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.8.—Accordingly, as Himavat said to Sage Nārada:—“O sage Nārada, of good knowledge, O lord, foremost among the sons of Brahmā [i.e., brahma-putravara], you are omniscient. You are sympathetic. You are engaged in rendering help to others. Please read the horoscope of my daughter and tell me about her good and bad fortune. Whose beloved wife will my fortunate daughter be?”.
