As many mythological creatures and objects are easily conflated and separated in Finnish mythology, Louhi is probably an alter-ego of various other goddesses, notably Louhetar, Loviatar, Lovitar.
"Louhi" or "lovi" also refer to a state of trance, or of magic. This can be seen, for example, in the opening lines often-used in spells that go "Nouse luontoni lovesta, haon alta haltiani" or variations thereof, translatable to "rise my nature from the lovi, (rise) my spirit from beneath the threshold".
