  • CONGRATULATIONS MOMMY!!! Hubby is a twin, exciting times coming!!! The first name could lead to him being called Dragon by kids just be aware of that. Kids though can be mean for any reason, a name won't necessarsily stop it. Maybe Drake leroy? That second first name is kinda growing on me. Loki how is that pronounced - Lohkeye or Lohkey? What about Luke James?

  • i like both of the first names but james doesnt really fit. the other names are so unique and james isnt. if its a family name then it makes sense but besides that id go for another unique name to go with loki. Oh and btw dont listen to people and their choices on names..they are your kids your the one thats goign to be calling then so you pick the names you think are best for them.

  • I'm unenthusiastic about Draegan. You are using Loki because he was what... the Norse god of war maybe? Some god anyway, this is a cool idea. How would Loki as a boy's name go across with his schoolmates?

  • These are like the names my husband suggested for our baby.. His were a little more odd and very hard to say.. At least for me..LOL I told him if I couldn't pronouce our child's name, then we needed a new name.. Not that yours are like that..
    All I can think of when I hear Loki is Dogma the movie.. I have to say that I kind of like Draegan though but it shouldn't matter what I think. You need to like the names and no one else but try to keep in mind what might happen when they enter school..
