Aapvats literally means, descendent of Aap or child of Aap. Samaranganasutradhara identifies 'Aapvats' as, 'Uma. In Sanskrit, the word uma also mean 'tranquillity: 'splendour: 'fame' and 'light'. Uma is another name of Hindu goddess Parvati. Goddess Uma came to earth from her heavenly abode Kailasha. The name Uma or Parvati is used for Sati (Shiva's first wife, who was reborn as Parvati).
As Aap is supposed to be Himwan, Aapvats (the offspring of Himwan) is none other then Goddess Parvati, the consort of Lord Shiva. Mother Goddess Uma is the Goddess of Creative Power, Marriage, Children, Fertility, Beauty, Purity, Energy, Love, and Devotion.
Parvati is the embodiment of divine knowledge and mother of the world. She appears as the shakti ( essential power) of the Supreme Brahman. Her primary role is as a mediator in the conflicts of heaven. Along with Lakshmi (goddess of wealth and prosperity) and Saraswati (gqddess of knowledge and learning), she forms the trinity of Hindu Goddesses (Tridevi).

Uma-Parvati is the wife of Lord Shiva - the destroyer, recycler and regenerator of the universe and all its life. Uma is the recreative energy and power of Shiva. Parvati and Shiva are often symbolised respectively by a yoni ( argha) and a linga in the temples dedicated to her and Shiva. Yoni means womb and place of gestation, the yoni-linga metaphor represents 'origin, source or regenerative power: The icon represents the interdependence and union of the feminine and masculine energies in recreation and regeneration of all life.
Parvati is the mother goddess and has many attributes and aspects. Each of her aspects is expressed with a different name. h is called Annapurna (abundance and food).
Parvati is sometimes shown with golden or yellow colour skin, particularly as goddess Gauri, symbolising her as the goddess of fertility and ripened harvests. In her benevolent manifestation such as Kamakshi or Meenakshi (goddess with eyes shaped like a fish), a parrot sits near her right shoulder symbolising cheerful love talk, seeds and fertility. Parvati is thus a mixture of the Vedic goddesses Aditi and Nirriti.
There is a concept that Aapvats is Lord Ayyapa, the son of Mohini and Shiva. Ayappa is more popular in South India.
