Nine Durgas

वीरभद्रयात्रावर्णनं नाम त्रयत्रिंशोऽध्यायः
Virabhadra travel description Chapter 33

ब्रह्मोवाच |
Brahma said (to Narada)

काली कात्यायनीशानी चामुण्डा मुण्डमर्दिनी |
भद्रकाली तथा भद्रा त्वरिता वैश्णवी तथा || 11 ||
एताभिर्नवदुर्गाभिर्महाकाली समन्विता |
ययौ दक्षविनाशाय सर्वभूतगणैः सह || 12 ||
Kali, Katyayani, Ishani, Chamunda, Mundamardini, Bhadrakali, Bhadra, Tvarita and Vaishnavi – these nine Durgas (forms of Durga) along with Mahakali went to destroy Daksha (and his sacrifice) with all the follower ghosts.
In the Devi kavacham, taken from Markandeya Purana, the names are somewhat different.
