English translation:ascetic hero/ heroine
Explanation:
Dhuta = ascetic
As in [At that time the Bodhisattva Heavenly Imperative asked the venerable Mahakasyapa, "You are of senior years and have long abided as foremost in the cultivation of the dharma of twelve dhuta (ascetic) practices. How is it that you are unable to remain still in your seat?"]

Vira = Hero/ Heroine (depending on the personality being spoken about)

So Dhutavira could be put together as "ascetic hero"
