I used to really like this name but the anime reference has really put me off due to a bad association between someone from my past and the anime... it's really a shame :(

I've got a horse with that name so it reminds me of an animal unfortunately!

A beautiful classical name for a mythology nerd such as myself. I just bestowed this name on my new lab puppy and we call her "Tia" for short.

She's nice, but is clingy and a tad jealous when Bell, the main guy character, talks to other girls.

Is the Hestia in this anime nice (or at least an impressive badass) or just a total bitche/evil etc?

I think this is a really gorgeous, earthy name. I love mythological names and this is one of the prettiest and most wearable.

I prefer Hester, but Hestia is great anyway.
