Ṛddhisiddhi (ऋद्धिसिद्धि) refers to “(one endowed with) prosperity and accomplishments”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.5.—Accordingly, as Menā said to Goddess Śivā (i.e., Umā/Durgā):—“O Śivā, Hail, Hail! O great goddess, If you consider me worthy of a boon, I shall choose one. O mother of the universe, at first let me have a hundred sons endowed with longevity, heroism, prosperity and accomplishments [i.e., ṛddhisiddhi-samanvita]. After that let me have a daughter of comely features and good qualities who will delight both the families and who will be revered by the three worlds. O Śivā, be my daughter for fulfilling the needs of the gods. O Goddess, be Rudra’s wife and indulge in divine sports with the lord”.
