Would it be disrespectful to name a child after a god?
ehh… I’m not in a position to speak for the gods so I can’t really say. I know (of) a few people named Freyja (or some variation on the spelling) and they seem nice, relatively happy and I’ve had no indication that The Lady has cursed them or their parents for their hubris or anything like that so *shrug* as far as I can tell it seems okay. Personally I wouldn’t, just ‘cause I think I’d feel a little weird calling my child by the same name as one of my gods, eg. “Thor, do your homework!” but that’s just me, y’know. That being said, names based on the gods’ like Thorgerd have historical precedent and were considered respectful and honouring, and I wouldn’t find that weird at all 🙂
