Saint Anne

"According to apocryphal Christian and Islamic tradition, Saint Anne was the mother of Mary and the maternal grandmother of Jesus. Mary´s mother is not named in the canonical gospels. In writing, Anne´s name and that of her husband Joachim come only from New Testament apocrypha, of which the Gospel of James (written perhaps around 150) seems to be the earliest that mentions them.

The mother of Mary is mentioned, but not named, in the Quran." - (en.wikipedia.org 28.12.2019)
