Silvertongue is one of Loki's monikers in Marvel Comics and the MCU. [1] It's supposed to refer to his superior eloquence, but in fandom, many fans have decided that Loki earned this byname by being especially skilled at giving oral sex.

The idea of Loki being extremely eloquent has its roots in Norse mythology, where he is also known as Liesmith because of his ability to talk himself ruthlessly out of almost any situation. [2]
