Just last year over 5,000 boys and girls were named parker, a pretty normal name. There were also 96 babies named Loki in 2017, five of them were girls. Some names work, some don't. 

63 girls were named Valkyrie, while 39 boys were named Banner, unique names that aren't to crazy. Though 50 babies were named Marvel, and 37 were named Rocket.
