Yes, for example Nichel and Cobalt (I assume you were talking about ferromagnetic metals).

And gadolinium (provided it's a cold day). I have heard that one of the crystal forms of plutonium is ferromagnetic too but I don't propose to try to find out.

Neodymium magnets aren't made of Nd but of an alloy containing iron. I rather doubt that Ru is is magnetic. If I find any about the place I will check.
