Vesta as a girl's name is of Latin origin for the Roman goddess of the hearth. Vesta is one of the three virgin goddesses of antiquity, known to the Greeks as Hestia. The others were Athena and Artemis. Vesta's altar was tended by six keepers of her sacred fire, called "vestal virgins", and it was an honor for a Roman family to have a daughter among them.
