Trailokyanātha (त्रैलोक्यनाथ) refers to the “lord of the three worlds” and is used to describe Kumāra / Kārttikeya (i.e., Śiva’s son), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.6 (“The miraculous feat of Kārttikeya”).—Accordingly, as a Brahmin named Nārada said to Kumāra (Kārttikeya): “[...] O lord of the distressed, O great lord, O son of Śiva, O lord of the three worlds (trailokyanātha), O master of magical art, I have to seek refuge in you. O favourite of the brahmins, save me. You are the lord of all. You are eulogised by Brahmā and other gods who bow to you. You have assumed forms through magical art. You are the bestower of happiness to your devotees. You are eager to protect. You wield power of deluding others. [...]”.
