aitareya perhaps a patronymic from Itara, though the commentator Sāyana regards the word as a metronymic from Itarā, is an epithet of Mahidasa in the Aitareya Aranyaka and the Chāndogya Upanisad.
mahidāsa aitareya (‘Descendant of Itara or Itarā’) is the name of the sage from whom the Aitareya Brāhmana and Aranyaka take their names. He is several times referred to in the Aitareya Araṇyaka, but not as its author. He is credited with a life of 116 years in the Chāndogya Upanisad and the Jaiminiya Upanisad Brāhmana.
mahaitareya Is the title of a Vedic text according to the Gṛhya Sūtras of the Rgveda.
