EnglishEdit

EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Old Norse Loki. Often assumed to be a variant of Old Norse logi, from Proto-Germanic *lugô, related to Proto-Germanic *laugiz (fire, flame, lightning), from Proto-Indo-European *leuk- (light; white; to shine). Thus his name would refer to fire and lightning, but this is not linguistically sound. It is more likely related to Proto-Germanic *luką (lock), from Proto-Indo-European *lewg- (to turn, bend), his name would then be connected with entanglement.
