The nickname "Loðbrók" refers to a saga about Ragnar that Saxo wrote. In the story, Ragnar dresses himself in a fur coat and fur pants and walks through icy water in order to get the fur frozen. This is to be shielded from two Lindormar (mythical serpents) that have trapped a maiden in her house. Afterwards, the maiden's father mocks Ragnar for having "fuzzy pants", i.e., "Loðbrók". See more
