Raghavan's NCC (22, 92) names this author Śrīkaṇṭhadattaśivācārya. MS Mysore ORI 5480 colophons call him ParamaśaivācāryaśŚrīkaṇṭhadatta. NCC (35, 265) calls him Śrīkaṇṭha Śivācārya and Nīlakaṇṭha Śivācārya.

As Meulenbeld states, there is no probative evidence to identify this Śrīkaṇṭhapaṇḍita with the Śrīkaṇṭha who was the guru of Vidyāraṇya and others, as is done by P. Hymavathi (1991).
