    I like Ragnar. Even though it is extremely rare in the US, it doesn't feel any rarer than your sons' names. Your average American has probably never heard the name Ragnar, but chances are they've never heard Zeph@n or Per3grine either. Ragnar doesn't strike me as out of place in your family at all. Since you and your husband both love it and nothing else seems to get you as excited as Ragnar, I think you should stick to it.

    I think thanks to the History Channels new Vikings series, a lot more people will have heard of Ragnar. Its not so "out there" anymore. And honestly, I think if you love a name that much, you should use it.

    Oh, I LOVE Ragnar! And Roderick too. Both are amazing. R names rock! I also really like Rainer and Rainier, gorgeous names. I think all of them would look fantastic with your other little ones (all wonderfully named!). But Ragnar's got my heart.

    Other Scandinavian names you might like, not that you really need them, but I thought I'd throw them out there! (I know I broke you're ending rule, but you said usually don't work...):
    Aksel (my father is peace)
    Arvid (eagle tree)
    Bertil (bright ruler)
    Brage (the Norse God of poetry)
    Dag (day)
    Hampus (same as Johannes)
    Henrik (home ruler)
    Johannes (Yahweh is gracious)
    Ludvig (famous warrior)
    Marius (male) - Mars
    Melker (king city)
    Mikkel (enormous/who is like God?)
    Rasmus (beloved)
    Sivert/Sigvard (victory guardian)
    Sondre (south)
    Svante (blessed people)
    Ulrik (wolf power)
    Vidar (forest warrior)
    Wilmer (will/desire + famous)
