Not so much "instead of" as "beside". As a matter of fact, I've found both Atri and Attri listed as Shiva's epithets, both glossed as "Devourer". My idea is that attr- would tend to reduce to atr- except when there is strong analogic pressure to preserve or restore the geminate, as in attri:, the feminine counterpart of attR.

That's what I thought. But it's strange atr- instead of attr-.
