supreme goddess of cosmos (etruscan myth) - probably same in English!
Explanation:
In Etruscan mythology, Italy, \'Uni' was the supreme goddess of the pantheon. She was the patron goddess of Perugia as well.

With her husband, Tinia, and Menrva, she is part of a powerful triumvirate.

With Tinia, she was the mother of Hercle.

Uni was the Etruscan equivalent of Juno and Hera in Roman mythology and Greek mythology, respectively. Uni suckling Hercle. Uni, the supreme goddess of the cosmos, wife of Tinia and
mother of Hercle. This is probably the same in English - a name from Etruscan mythology. I don't see any possible variations right now. (This is from sources found on Google.) I hope this helps.
