The name has at times been associated with the Old Norse word logi ('flame'), but there seems not to be a sound linguistic basis for this.Rather, the later Scandinavian variants of the name (such as Faroese Lokki, Danish Lokkemand, Norwegian Loke and Lokke, Swedish Luki and Luku, along with Finnish Lukki) point to an origin in the Germanic root *luk-, which denoted things to do with loops (like knots, hooks, closed-off rooms, and locks).Loki may be depicted on the Snaptun Stone, the Kirkby Stephen Stone, and the Gosforth Cross.Loki's origins and role in Norse mythology, which some scholars have described as that of a trickster god, have been much debated by scholars.The gods then return to the hall, and continue drinking.Loki comes out of the woods, and meets Eldir outside of the hall.

By the jötunn Angrboða, Loki is the father of Hel, the wolf Fenrir, and the world serpent Jörmungandr.Loki "could not bear to hear that," and kills the servant Fimafeng.In response, the gods grab their shields, shrieking at Loki, and chase him out of the hall and to the woods.With the onset of Ragnarök, Loki is foretold to slip free from his bonds and to fight against the gods among the forces of the jötnar, at which time he will encounter the god Heimdallr and the two will slay each other.Loki is referred to in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources; the Prose Edda and Heimskringla, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson; the Norwegian Rune Poems, in the poetry of skalds, and in Scandinavian folklore.
