Vesta

Vesta is the name of the Roman goddess of the hearth in Roman mythology, the Roman counterpart to the Greek goddess Hestia. The name seems to be a cognate of Hestia meaning “hearth, home; fireplace, altar” derived from PIE root word *h₂wes- (to dwell, live, reside).

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
