Riordan is off the table? Too bad, I'd love to know someone with little Rio.
But OK, I prefer Roderick "Rook". I doubt I have Scandinavian heritage so Ragnar isn't my cup of hot chocolate but if you love it more than Roderick...
From the middle names I only love William but Ragnar William isn't very good, is it? I am not sure...Ragnar Ethan/Wade/Skye is fine though.Victoria

Thanks to everyone for your input here, both the pros and the cons. It’s all very helpful as we’re thinking things through. Never occurred to either of us that Ragnar looks like Ranger; it does, I see now that you mention it. I don’t know that it’s going to turn us totally off from it, but it’s a good thing to have in consideration. We still have a lot of time.
I should have posted more clearly before, I’ll be doing combos of both Ragnar and Roderick, so whatever would be fun to play with I’m happy to take a look at. I definitely wouldn’t have thought of some of these combos myself so I’m loving these! Thanks for playing, Berries!
My favorites are:
Ragnar Ethan Quinn
Ragnar Lewis Quinn
Ragnar Frederic Wade
Ragnar Frederic Ethan
Ragnar Amadeus (is the * for your favorite?)
Best new suggestions:
Ragnar Lewis – good one!
Ragnar Leonidas – you’re right, that’s pretty amazing, it breaks the “normal name rule,” though Leo would be pretty do-able. Actually, I might like Leonidas for a first name, come to think of it.
I’m not loving the “ook” thing (though I have to say Booker was a pretty brilliant suggestion there) so I’m going to move on from that idea. It feels overly forced and if we go with Ragnar, we’re actually most likely to call him Ragnar anyway.
Riordan: it got the boot because DH and I couldn’t agree about the spelling. He said that Riordan looked like “ree-OR-dan” or “RYE-or-dan” instead of “REE-r-den.” He wanted to spell it Rearden/Reardan/Reardon, but I was having issues with “rear” being in it, so I threw it overboard.
Thanks again for the combos as well as the comments.

Yes, I starred Ragnar Amadeus because it is awesome and it was my favorite. I like Leonidas with Caspian, Zephen, and Peregrine would be fabulous!!
On Riordan -- the guy who wrote the Percy Jackson books, Rick Riorden, on his website he says his last name is pronounced to rhyme with fireman so I can see the issues here.
Roderick Wade Ulysses popped into my head. I'll come back with more later when I'm not busy.Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^
Started my NaNoWriMo novel - Kith nor Kin -- read it here if you'd like and feel free to comment -- http://kithnorkin.wordpress.com/ Chapter 19 is up -- Warning! It's pretty gruesome.

I love Ragnar, Roderick, and Leonidas! I think Roderick and Leonidas fit a bit better with your sibset on the whole, but Ragnar is quirky enough that it would work just fine, too, I think. Lots of the combos previously mentioned are fabulous, especially because I love almost all of your middles! Leonidas Rainier is quite princely, I think (and I have a soft spot for Rainier as it is one of my son's middle names, too!). Fabulous choices!
