Utpatiṣṇu (उत्पतिष्णु) refers to “flying upwards”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.15 (“The penance and reign of Tārakāsura”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated: “[...] At the same time, several phenomena of evil portent forboding misery and distress happened, when the son of Varāṅgī was born making the gods miserable. [...] Idols and images of deities appeared to cry and fly up [i.e., utpatiṣṇu]. Even when there was no gale, trees fell down. Planets in the sky clashed with one another. O excellent sage, these and similar portending phenomena occurred: Ignorant persons thought the submersion of the whole universe was imminent. [...]”.
