Roderick would count as far as I'm concerned and I can't imagine what his problem is with that one; it's much more normal and isn't nn Rook the coolest? Someone around Nameberry suggested it long ago and I snagged it for my list. I'd love to use it, and I'm going to keep it around in hopes that it might grow on DH. Ragnar does have some other significance though; the "ranya" element resembles my mom's name (Randy, which she hates and would not like being passed on directly), plus nn Ron would be a nod to Mom's hero (Ronald Reagan). I like the meaning, and have admired Ragnar for awhile (it was on my long list with Pip), but it's mostly that out of my entire list of pet favorites, dh only likes Ragnar, Riordan and Ethan.
    Ahh, well, Ragnar is still pretty cool.

    I went to school with a Roderick, actually! He went by Roddy (like Robbie but with a "D"), which I sort of like, because I love Brody so. I think Roddy is a bit more cuddly and cute, but Rook is seriously cool; that's undeniable.
