Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Suvannapālī:Daughter of Girikandasiva and wife of Pandukābhaya.

Pandukābhaya saw her on her way to her father’s field with food and made her entertain him and his followers.

Her name was Pālī,and she was given her soubriquet because the banyan leaves,on which she served the meal to Pandukābhaya,turned into gold in her hands.

She had five brothers,all of whom were killed by Pandukābhaya’s companion,Canda.Mhv.x.30ff.
