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.

Nyx, goddess of night - A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of other personified deities such as Hypnos (Sleep) and Thanatos (Death). Her appearances are sparse in surviving mythology, but reveal her as a figure of such exceptional power and beauty, that she is feared by Zeus himself. She is found in the shadows of the world and only ever seen in glimpses.
