Called Janapadakalyāni Rūpanandā (DhA.iii.113ff).

She is evidently identical with Janapadakalyānī Nandā (At AA.i.198 she is actually identified with her, but see Sundarī Nandā), and is described as a sister (? step sister) of the Buddha.

The person referred to as her husband (bhattā) is probably Nanda, the Buddha's step brother; strictly speaking, he joined the Order without having married her, though the wedding had been announced and all preparations were being made.
