    Vesta

    I need your opinions berries. This name grew on me a lot lately but I'm worried about the associations people might have.

    I've liked this name for a long time but I don't think it gets much love. For some, it's vest with an "a" stuck on the end. For others, it's too similar to Vespa. I like it anyway. Vesta is the Roman goddess of the hearth, home, and family. It's also an asteroid. Those are two pretty cool associations. For some reason, I like Vesta Mae as a combo (she's a Southern belle sitting on her veranda swing sipping a mint julep ).
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Vestas is a Danish wind turbines manufacturer, so that's the first thing that springs to my mind (but wind energy isn't a bad association, wind turbines are an important source of renewable and sustainable energy). That said, I like Vesta. It's a lovely name.

    Makes me think of Vespas and vests. Have you considered the Greek equivalent of the Roman goddess Hestia? Rather similar in sound.

    I immediately think of vests and vestibule. Not fond of Vesta.
