To be a little bit more specific about its meaning: the name is derived from Greek 'histiē' (ἱστίη) meaning "hearth". This is also spelled 'histia' (ἱστία) sometimes.

It seems the original Greek form of Hestia was Histia; Hestia is said to be an Ionic Greek form. Although there are sources who state the opposite and say that Hestia is the original Greek form while Histia is the Ionic Greek form.

This name is so pretty and elegant, and a breath of fresh air compared to much more common names like "Madison" or "Emma".

Hestia (the goddess) was also thought to be the fire at core of the earth (and since the Greeks were geocentric, that made her the center of the universe). She was also typically immobile and very resistant to change.

The Harry Potter character Hestia Jones is well-named, because Hestia was laughing at various domestic appliances in the Dursley's home in Harry Potter!

I am really starting to like this name. I saw it recently in a book and I've quickly fallen in love with it. It's classic and unique while not being weird.

This is such a pretty name! If I grow up and decide to have children, I might name her Hestia. Either that or it'll be her middle name. Hestia also sounds like wysteria, in a way.
