Śrīnātha (श्रीनाथ) is the one of the three mind-born sons of Sage Durvāsas charged with mission of establishing the Śaiva faith, according to a commentary on the Tantrāloka.—As, thus, with the disappearance of the Śāstras the world became engrossed in spiritual darkness, Śiva,—as the Deity is called,–took pity on men and, appearing on the Kailāsa mountain in the form of Śrīkaṇṭha, commanded the Sage Durvāsas to spread in the world the knowledge of these Śāstras again. Durvāsas, thus commanded, created, by the power of his mind, three sons,—Tryambaka, Āmardaka and Śrīnātha by names—whom he charged with the mission of establishing spiritual order and of teaching men again the ancient and eternal Śaiva faith and doctrine in their three aspects of Abheda, Bheda and Bhedābheda–of Unity, Diversity and Diversity-in-unity,—Tryambaka was to teach the first, Āmardaka the second, while Śrīnātha was to have the charge of the last.

India history and geogprahySource: archive.org: Personal and geographical names in the Gupta inscriptions
Śrīnātha (श्रीनाथ) is an example of a Vaiṣṇavite name mentioned in the Gupta inscriptions. Classification of personal names according to deities (eg., from Vaiṣṇavism) were sometimes used by more than one person and somehow seem to have been popular. The Gupta empire (r. 3rd-century CE), founded by Śrī Gupta, covered much of ancient India and embraced the Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Derivation of personal names (eg., Śrīnātha) during the rule of the Guptas followed patterns such as tribes, places, rivers and mountains.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
