Vesta was derived from Hestia, the Greek name for a goddess who was essentially the same as the Roman Vesta. The Vestal Virgins were a religious sect in ancient Rome.

Vesta Tilley (1864 - 1952) was one of the highest paid vaudeville performers of her day. She was a world-renowed male impersonator, most famous for playing (with a satirical bent) the roles of somewhat foppish young men. During WWI, Vesta and her family helped considerably with the war effort, running a recruitment drive, selling war bonds, and performing in hospitals. Her husband was knighted for his services. Vesta Tilley was actually her stage name, Tilley as a nickname for Matilda, and Vesta from a brand of safety matches.

I don't like Vesta, it looks and sounds strange to me. Vesta reminds me of the name Vester, one of my grandfather's cousin's name. Thus, to me, Vesta seems like a weird misspelling and mispronunciation of a not so great, but not so bad either, male name.

On the TV show 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' Vesta is said to be Aunt Hilda and Aunt Zelda's other sister. So that makes her Sabrina's other aunt.

It means sweater in Croatian. If your child ever comes in Croatia don't name him/her this.
