Wikipedia is not only about data directly related to the map, it is also 
about mathematics, music, astronomy, etc.  But these disciplines 
certainly have a relation to a map via places of birth, study, etc.
So what if to continue the traditions of:
MySQL
PostgresSQL
SparQL
Transact-SQL
etc.

Those who worked with a SQL Structured Query Language know what a 
powerful tool it is. The Wikipedia (Wikidata) describes the universe as 
we on Earth know it. So my suggestion:

UniverSQL
or a short final variant:
U-SQL

Univers is the French variant of the english word Universe (lat. Universum).
Best regards,
