Looking for Gaia, Tellus, Mother Earth, etc.

I need recommendations for gendered representations of nature (e.g.: Gaia, Tellus, Terra, Mother Earth/Nature, etc.) in literature, media, art, children's books, or anything else.

I'm working on a writing project and need some help finding gendered representations of nature. Specifically, I'd love to find things that have characters based on or named after gendered mythical figures. I know lots of these exist, but I'm having some trouble tracking them down. Children's books are especially helpful here, but any other media works just as well.
What books, movies, stories, comics, games, academic text or other art/media do you know of that present gendered versions of nature or a feminine "earth spirit" type of deal? I'm also happy to look at male gendered representations of nature, if that opens things up a bit.
