Sānukūlā (सानुकूला) refers to “one’s favorite (wife)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.8.—Accordingly, Nārada said to Himavat:—“[..] O lord of mountains, she will be the wife of Śiva and will remain his favourite always [i.e., sānukūlā]. She will be a chaste lady of good rites. She will increase the pleasure of her parents. Performing a penance she will fascinate Śiva’s mind towards herself. He too will marry none else except her. A love akin to this pair will not be found anywhere. Never in the past was it seen nor will it occur in future. Nor it is current now. [...]”.
