Techincally, yes. She participated in the Titanomachy on the side of the gods, and as a personification, is a child of Pallas (a Titan) and Styx (a primordial).

How did goddess Nike get symbolized as victory?

the Greeks did as they saw fit. it was their "science" it was their religion it was their belief. Why did they name Zeus "Zeus"? Why is Poseidon god of the ocean? We don't really know. I can't find anything about Nike other than this: She was the daughter of the goddess Styx and the titan pallas. Her siblings are Zelus (Rivalry), Bia (Force) and Kratos (Strength). They all became allies of Zeus during the Titan vs. god war. For their aid, all received honors. Nike got to drive Zeus' chariot. Some myths make her out to be a friend of Athena, the goddess of wisdom, war, and helpful crafts.

Never, as Cynthia was a epithet of Artemis/Diana, a virgin goddess of the hunt and wilderness and Zeus's daughter. However, Cynthia was also a title of Selene, the Titan goddess of the Moon, whom Zeus did have children by. It isn't however known when they did, as Zeus had wives other than Hera before that marriage.
