Vesta was the virgin goddess of hearth, home and family in Roman mythology.  She was particularly important to women, as the hearth was where food was prepared, and leftovers would be thrown into the flames in offering to her.  

Swan Vestas, the UK's most popular brand of matches, draw their name from their parent company and from the goddess Vesta.
