Bhattanarayan ( Sanskrit: , Bengali:  ) was a Brahmin (Brahmana) who lived around 770 CE in Uttara Radha (northern part of South West Bengal).

In 805 CE, Bhattanarayan's son Govindasharman migrated1 from Uttara Radha (northern part of South West Bengal) to village called Puruvanja in Ganjam District of Orissa.
