Tycho - Tycho Brahe? It's not like he was a piddly nobody in the world of astronomy or anything. Plus, it's being used: it's ranked #151 in the Netherlands (according to 2011 data)
Cassander - masculine form of Cassandra, name of a king of Macedon, and generally awesome
Gratian - name of a saint and a Roman emperor. Plus, with the option to use the stylish nickname "Gray," it's a nice alternative to the tiresome Grayson/Greyson/Graydon/Greydon
Europa (+ several other Eu- girls' names! I'll give special mention to Eudoxia, since I'm digging it right now) - it's the name of a moon! all moons should have pages
Svea - Swedes are into it (ranked #78 in 2011), and it's been in use for at least a few centuries.
Runa - Feminine form of Runeon my mind, for the moment

Also, re: some behind-the-times info, Rory's boy-to-girl ratio is different than it was back when the entry was written (going off data from 2006-2009, it's accurate). From the 2011 data, though, the ratio is now about 59:41 in favor of the boys.
