@yreynolds - thanks, that's good to know. I suppose I actually would track down a way to see the series before I used the name for sure. I guess I'm just trying to get a feel for whether the general impression is terrible before I go to the bother!
@resaandmo, thanks for your input too.
I've edited my original post to promote Riordan nn Rio to the official considerations and take Devereaux off. I do appreciate any comments, even if they are negative...I'd rather find out the problems now and make an informed decision about it.

@makaylaerin - sorry, I missed your comment while I was composing my last message! I know...Ragnar but not Viggo. I have sort of given up on trying to understand the method to his madness. If my girl post *ever* gets through the moderator's checks, you'll see that he loves Dagny too, but says Sunniva is "too foreign." Uh...alright, dear. Thanks for your input!

Well, Roderick nn Rook is really my favorite of the top three, but I think I told you I'm already kinda thinking of the newbie as baby Ron! I actually have no idea how the populace will react since I've never met a Ragnar. Maybe we need to become informal pollsters and ask our friends what they'd think if they met a baby/toddler/teen/adult named Ragnar, nn Ron, since possible negative outside opinions seem to be your only hangup over this name.
By the way, did your husband (or you!) like any of the Czech/Slovak names I sent you the other day? I thought some of them were so cool."He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names."

@auroradawn - Wait, what? I think a message got eaten!
Maybe I should set up a poll.

I like Ragnar. I think there's a character on the new show Vikings named that, so that might help make it more familiar. I also really like Rainier. Rook is on my list, but not as a nickname. It would be in honor of my grandmother, who loved the card game Rook. It's a big family thing for us. Roderick is nice too, but I am not a fan of Riordan at all.
I love Caradoc nn Cary! It's on my list as well is Cormac.
What about Ross? That is DH's name. I think it's probably a little different than your style, but I love it. It's familiar, but very uncommon in our area.
