This is a great name for a cat, especially if the cat is a troublemaker.

My dog is named Loki, and I think it would be a great name for a boy too! :)

I feel like many parents who give their child this name forget that the name Loki actually has a lot of bad associations. Things like when he had sex with a horse, got pregnant, and then gave birth to a foal. Or when he tied his and a goat's testicles together and started a game of tug o' war. Or how he was sentenced to an eternity of torture after he killed the most popular god out of jealousy. Not to mention how much he cheated on his wife. I just hope that parents take the name's bearer into consideration before naming their child after him :(

Loki...Loki comes from Alec/Alex/Alexander because in ancient Greek e,o are the two short vowels one changing to the other...As Alexander cut the Gordian knot, Loki is the master of knots...Same confusion with gene and genos...Thor comes from Tholos and refers to Christ (chosen/annointed)... Hela from Helen, Hellenes, even Elon, Hell and Hellas...
Odin comes from Ode i.e. song...
Aeris comes from Eris, i.e. Conflict
Aegon comes from Agon, i.e. Strife
Aemon comes from Aema/Emma, i.e. Blood
Mephisto comes from Hephestus
Bhaal comes from Zeus Belus
Most northern and Western mythology and Christianity derives from Ancient Greek if someone bothers to learn the Greek language...
Well-read people realize it sooner or later...

This name reminds me of Deceit Sanders. Probably because of its meaning. Deceit can be very tricky. Him being a snake and all...

Loki is already a marvel super villain but I guess it could be a diminutive of Luke. Besides that I would not use it. Also rhymes with “low key” if nobody noticed ;) but it’s not a bad name.

I love the character of Loki, both in the original Norse myths, and in the Marvel comics/movies (I mean, who couldn't love him with all of Tom Hiddleston's charm). However, as fascinating as Loki is as a character, he does do some pretty evil things. I don't necessarily think he's fully evil (though he does get progressively more villainous in mythology), but it still would seem weird to name a child after a character who did do commit some extremely villainous crimes (even if, in the MCU, he was being warped by the mind stone). He is a very interesting and intricate character (and the comics, especially the more recent ones, and the more recent movies do give him a number of redemptive stories). He's charming and lovable, yet perhaps, because of his history, his name would be inadvisable for a child.

I myself am a fan of Norse mythology, and to be frank my favorite Norse god is Loki. I find this name to have a Mysticism to it, and a bit of mischief as well that gives it that rouge vibe. If you want to give a name to someone or something that implies rebelliousness and mischief, then I suggest this be your pick.

I don't find this name to be particularly usable. Certainly not the worst in my opinion but I do find it well more suited to a pet or left in the mythology and comic stories that was adapted into a blockbuster film.
Guess what? There are bound to be people who aren't going to care for your name choice just like any other name. That's life. Grow a spine. As well as a brain.

Me & my loving partner proudly & without regret have named our child(boy) Loki maximus Haines. I have 4 children from previous relationship, so Loki is my 5th( and youngest)
But he is my partners 1st( and probably only child due to age) I have to say that we as a couple have absolutely zero regrets or misconceptions about naming our little boy after the Norse god of mischief and THORS brother from the MC u! End of the day id love for someone to tell me how you wouldn't be able to succeed in life! With a name that is worldly known but rarely used! Fuck u boring, unachievable self loathing uneducated Fuck wit trolls who have have about as much personality and charisma as a dried up snail trying to make its way across a sheet of plain white A4 paper! Leaving behind you the only true and pathetic mark in your self righteous and lonely outlook on life with one hand on your keyboard spending your time masturbating to animal sex films while making out like your opinion even matters in a world that's trying to destroy itself whist trying to influence and judge everyone else because your fucking g boring and no one likes u and u cant get a woman because of your penis resembles that of a small dog with a lipstick�prick.

In God of War 4, the mother of Atreus, Faye, wanted to name him Loki. So, basically Loki is his second name.

I really like the name Loki, it's one of my favorite names. Personally, I think it's a unisex name, and can suit a boy or a girl, but who knows. :O.

Another theory is that the name is derived from the Germanic root *luk- meaning "knot" or "lock". [noted -ed] This could relate to a myth from the Prose Edda in which Loki's mouth is sewn shut, an image that can also be found in Viking Age depictions of the god, such as on the Snaptun Stone.

Loki was one of the coolest characters in the MCU movies. He is Thor’s brother. Adopted, though.

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.

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 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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!
