Gabija (Gabieta, Gabeta) is the spirit of the fire in Lithuanian mythology. She is the protector of home and family. Her name is derived from gaubti (to cover, to protect).

Fire had to be laid to bed – women would cover charcoal with ashes every evening so that fire would not wander around.
In Norse mythology, Nótt (Old Norse "night") is night personified, grandmother of Thor. In stanza 30 of the poem Alvíssmál, Thor asks the dwarf Alvíss to tell him what night is called in each of the nine worlds, whom "Nórr" birthed. Alvíss responds that night is referred as "night" by mankind, "darkness" by the gods, "the masker by the mighty Powers", "unlight" by the jötunn, "joy-of-sleep" by the elves, while dwarves call her "dream-Njörun" (meaning "dream-goddess").
