I can't roll with Loki being used on children, let alone a girl. It's mainly because the Marvel version is so popular now---he's a supervillain, and you would not name your child "the Joker". Loki also does a lot of awful things in the myths (but I'm not as familiar with Norse mythology as I am with Greek). Loki is a fun, interesting character, but he is not a great namesake and his name is male, despite the whole turning into a milkmaid thing.

Its not that I havent researched the name. I know exactly what it means and that it is intentionally a male name. To me Loki itself (history and mythology aside) always sounded more feminine and innocent when not associated with anything else. I was curious if anyone else thought of it this way. Good to know the majority thoughts though! haha Thank god for nameberry community! =)
