This question assumes Brahma is not Brahman but is a post that gets filled by different entities over time. Do we know the names of previous Brahmas, like we know the names of many Manus?

EDIT:

What are the different names of Brahma as per scriptures?

is different - it asks for names of the same Brahma - not different Brahmas as this question asks.

In Skanda Purāņa, Prabhās khanda, Prabhas kshetra Mahatmaya, chap 7, from verse 10 onwards it is said as follows:-

adhunā vaiṣṇavīṃ raudrīṃ yātrāṃ sarvārthasaṃyutām | vaktumarhasi cāsmākaṃ purāṇārthaviśārada|| 10 ||

  1. Six Brahmās have passed away. The present Prajāpati who is well-known as Śatānanda is the seventh one, O goddess.

  • Fair is fair, although I would have preferred a source other than Skanda purana :- ) @krsnadasa

  • The Sanskrit doesn’t match with the English. Seems to be talking of a tirtha yatra.

  • Someone edited it, thus the sanskrit got misplaced
