What do you think of the name Hestia?

If I choose this name for myself, would it be offensive to the real Hestia?

  • I don't believe so. She never said "Don't take my name in vain". She would probably be honored that you chose to remember her :)

  • The more I read of her the more I fall in love with her and her purpose. :)

  • Then go for it :) Not all the gods are as jealous as the Christian god, but it is hard to get rid of those preconceptions, you know?

  • I don't think so I think it would be a tribute. I like the name personally.

  • I LOVE it! And no, I don't think it would anger her unless you were acting against her beliefs/personality...

  • No, if you use it with respect and dont go off and use it to do rotten things Im sure she'd be honored.
