What is the name of Ganesha's mouse? I have heard that it is called Mushaka which is the sanskrit word for mouse (as a species) itself. Is there any other name mentioned about the specific mouse that was with Ganesha?
Edit: I think my question is quite different from how the mouse became Ganesha's vahana. Even though the answer there might mention nis name as Mushikasura in his Asura form I thought it was not clear whether he retained that name in his form as mouse also. I would like to keep my question open for any other answers. Thanks for the responses!
