From wiki about Gabija
Gabija (also known as Gabieta, Gabeta) is the goddess of fire and hearth in the Lithuanian mythology. She is the protector of home and family, provider of happiness and fertility. Her name is derived from gaubti (to cover, to protect) or from St. Agatha (Russian: Gafiya). Gabija is only mentioned in a list of Lithuanian gods by Jan Łasicki (published in 1615) and later encountered in Lithuanian folklore.

Gabija could take zoomorphic forms of a cat, stork or rooster, or she could appear as a woman clothed in red. The fire of Gabija was greatly respected and cared for like a living creature. People would feed Gabija by offering bread and salt. Fire had to be laid to bed – women would cover charcoal with ashes every evening so that fire would not wander around. Just as Gabija was the protector of the house, mother of the household was the protector of fire. Sometimes a bowl of clean water would be left near the hearth so that Gabija could wash herself. If angered, Gabija would "go for a walk" burning the house. Much folklore describes ill fate of those who offended Gabija by stomping, spitting, or urinating on fire.

Matka Gabia is the Polish goddess of home, hearth, and patron of their care. Gabia most likely originates from Gabija.
