Ningal

Ningal (? DNIN.GAL, "Great Lady/Queen") was a goddess of reeds in the Sumerian religion, daughter of Enki and Ningikurga and the consort of the moon god Nanna by whom she bore the sun god Utu, his sister Inanna, and in some texts, Ishkur. She is chiefly recognised at Ur, and was probably first worshipped by cow-herders in the marsh lands of southern Mesopotamia.
