Rhea ("Ray-uh"--but a little breathier, "Rhhey-uh"). Likely meaning 'to flow'. This one may seem modern, but it has a large place in the founding of both Greek and Roman mythology/legend. She is mother of Zeus, Poseidon, Hera, Demeter, Hestia, and Hades in Greek myth; in Roman legend, she was the mother of the twin brothers who founded Rome, Remus and Romulus.

Eurynome, by Helena Nelson Reed - She was the Titan goddess of water-meadows and pasturelands, and one of the elder Okeanides. She was the third bride of Zeus who bore him the Kharites, three goddesses of grace and beauty. Eurynome was also the goddess of the river Neda in Arkadia, and the mother of Asopos, a nearby stream. Her name was derived from the Greek words eurys "wide," "broad," and nomia "pasturelands." http://www.theoi.com/Titan/TitanisEurynome.html
