Krishaashwa's wives' names, Jayaa and Suprabhaa, come in V-Raamaayan, 1/6/21 also. Prajaapati Krishaashwa gave birth to 100 missiles who are supreme. Jayaa got the Var and begot 50 formless sons to destroy demonic people. They were very brave and courageous. Their job was only to kill Raakshas. Suprabhaa also gave birth to another 50 invincible sons named "Sanhaaran" (Destroyer). Enemy could not even dare to attack them.
According to Bhavishya Puraan, 1/10, Daksh had a daughter named Roopaa whom he gave to Soorya while the Sun was still in the egg. And while he was still in egg, he had two children from her - Yam and Yamunaa. Later she could not tolerate Soorya's Tej, so she kept her shadow with Soorya secretively, took the form of a mare and went to Uttar Kuru Pradesh to do Tap.
