Algae would make a more attractive name than Helgi.

I agree, it doesn't sound sad or downtrodden or lazy...its upbeat though a bit precocious. the only 'downside' is the 'hell' sound...but the -gi throws your mind away from the obvious lol. reminds me of Hilde.

Then, no offense intended, but there must be something wrong with the 'American ear'. Just because Helgi's not Jayden, James or Bentley doesn't mean that it's not a decent choice. I certainly see nothing wrong with it. It's quite sweet actually, and would make a fine choice for anyone inspired by the tv shows Vikings and The Last Kingdom, or for anyone just looking for something unique or Scandi-esque in nature.
