Personally, I love the name Loki. I think it is just a great name, and it is one I will be using myself when I have children in the future. Despite it's negative meaning, I still like it. To those who constantly remind others how "horrible" the meaning is... Oh well!

Will be using this name for my first born son (the sooner, the better).

Loki is not evil, although he is a trickster and his actions lead to serious consequences for anyone who gets in his way. But there is no real animosity between Loki and the other gods. Loki is, in a sense, chaos. He is the Murphy's Law of Norse mythology. He is neither good nor evil, he simply is. And he does what he is fated to do, since not even the gods of Norse mythology have free will.

The Swedish form is Loke (LOO-kay).

I think Loki is such a lovely name, and it is interesting because it is from mythology. I mean, it has a much more interesting heritage then some boring name such as "Amy" or "Tom". I find (Norse, especially) mythology amazing, so I think this would be such a nice name for a child. I do not find the meaning negative but merely interesting and I think it is a name which is unique and fascinating and would stand out anywhere.

I actually named one of my cats Loki. I wanted something unusual and the explanation of the name was more or less "troublemaker" so that pretty much summed him up.

Actually, my neighbors across the street did the same thing. They named thier other cat "Thor," too. Either way, I think it's an okay name for a person, except that now whenever I hear the name, it makes me think of a cat. XD

In Swedish he is Loke.

Loki is an awsome name!

People, please think of how much the children in school (at least in America) would tease your son if you named him this.

Loki has four known children:

It's the name of a evil PAGAN deity! It should not be used for a person. Yes, he was a trixter, but he was also portaited as evil sometimes, ask an anthropologist.

What about the names Iris, Diana, Athena, Ajax, Alexander, Atlanta, Cassandra, Chloe, Daphne, Doris, Hector and Helen? Those are all Greek mythological names...

Many people say that he was evil and a trickster and although this may be true he was also depicted as a friend of man in the 18th century ballad named Loka Táttur. I think this name is lovely.

I know several guys named Loki, but I actually like this name for a girl.

Loki was the name of an angel played by Matt Damon in the movie Dogma. His character was trying to get back into heaven, and prove God wrong, which would eventually lead to the destruction of the entire universe.

In my opinion, Loki is more of a cat's name than a human's.

I really like the name Loki. I don't worry very much about it because where I live, people are pretty much stupid when it comes to ancient religions/mythologies. I'll use the name if I have a son.

Loki was an interesting character. He was Odin's second-cousin. I don't think that he was evil, really, just mischevous and impulsive. I like the name.

Loki was a giant, not a god.
eliorafalk  9/19/2007
He was half-giant half-god.

Loki is the alias of antagonist Oliver Moore in the 'Fearless' series by Francine Pascal.

The ending of this name seems somewhat harsh and abrupt to me.

In Norwegian (and Danish), too, it is spelled Loke (the e being pronounced the same way as in 'red'). Ironically, it seems that Loki is actually the old Norse way of spelling it, though the three original Norse countries have all moved away from it.

Unfortunately Loki is the Maltese word for "toilet".

I personally love this name as a name, but since Thor and The Avengers I think it would be unwise to use this for a child, especially if it would be an unusual name to being with where you live. People love Loki (but maybe it's just because of Tom Hiddleston), sure, but people would probably assume you named your child after the character. Which is fine if you want to do that, but to me it seems a little too... pop culture-y? At the moment.

Reminds me of when I was a kid and was playing Lineage II. My aunt had a dark elf warrior named Loki, so whenever I hear the name I think of the game, and only later of the mythological character and his Marvel/film versions.

I really like this name because it makes me think of Loki from the Trylle Trilogy by Amanda Hocking.
Maeve N. E.  10/18/2015
I love the name but given he is known for having sex with a horse I couldn't do that to a child ;)

Loki is the antagonist of the Magnus Chase series by Rick Riordan, but many protagonists have borne this name.

Loki is the kennel name of my puppy. I do not think my puppy is evil.

The name Loki was given to 114 boys born in the US in 2015.

I named my dog Loki. It took him 3 years to be fully potty trained. He ended up with 2 completely different cancers and has a congenital spine disorder. I feel I cursed the poor fellow with his name. My husband would say "what did you expect when you named him Loki" I don't recommend it!

My name is Loki! I haven't been bullied ever in my life about my name, and I think my name's done the opposite for me. Whenever I tell anyone my name, they smile and tell me how much of a cool name I have. When I'm at school, all of the kids walking by say: "Hey, Loki!" And it's AWESOME! (It could just be that I'm amazing, though). I have never been to America and I don't have a clue if they would bully me or not. No-one talks about what my name actually means around me, or criticizes me about it. Overall, I think my name is a cool one, with an interesting meaning behind it. If you're going to have a boy, make sure to name him Loki! (If you're going to have two boys, name them Loki and Thor!)

I think Loki is a nice name and I chose it as my name (since I'm a boy) and I think it's quite unique :)

I think the name Loki is a boy name only.

Personally I loved the name Loki and the meaning of it and have named our baby pitbull Loki. She has become very mysterious and evil in her grown-up days.
Camunesp  3/21/2018
Personally I love the name Loki and I would love to name my future son Loki. And yes I got the name from "THOR" I just love the character Loki. He was bad at times but to me he always had a good heart. But I don't understand why Loki is such a bad name.
