After months of tense psychological combat with my wife she's settled on allowing the ues of Loki as a boy's middle name. I love the name but find that it feels a bit short. Is there anything technically "wrong" with combining names from different cultures to form a new one if the meanings of the parts of the names you're using make sense?
For example I came up with several ways to use Loki to make new potential names to choose form.
Lokiriil: Loki and Kiriil. I believe it would mean something close to Lord of Chaos/Mischief or Lord Loki . Lokidor: Loki and Dor/Doron/Doros. I believe this indicates that the name means Gift of Loki or Loved by Loki . Lokidin: A simple contraction of Loki and Odin . Lokindr: Loki and Ander. If I'm not mistaken this means something slightly more awkward like "chaos of man" or "Loki of Man".
Do these names actually "mean" what I think they should mean and is there anything wrong with combining names from different cultures in this manner?
