I'm so excited that this was finally added to the site! I've loved this name for a while now, and I also like the spelling Rider, which I have also seen. I hate when I see this used on girls though; it is so very masculine. Great name for a boy.

*gag* This is a ridiculous trend name. I can't stand it.

I would worry of the teasing potential of "ride her" with this name. That and Ryder Trucking Co. always comes to mind.

Cool name for a kid but not for an older person.

WOW! Possibly the worst name ever!

This name sounds like the name of the coolest and most attractive guy in some 1980s or 1990s high school movie. It also sounds like the name of a guy like that in real life, but now that it's become so popular, it won't have any edge to it when toddlers of today named Ryder are in their teens. The name still has that youth, energy, and spunk to it, but I think it might be a little too youthful, and a little too cool, and more like the name of a middle-aged guy who was once very attractive and fun-loving, popular with women and all, but has REALLY let himself go and has some sort of crappy job as a result of having dropped out of high school in pursuit of a career in showbiz, without success. It doesn't sound like a very serious or mature name, but cool for young and attractive guys.

This name is trying too hard. It's as if it's saying "I'm cool. Really, I am. See, my name has a y and invokes images of warriors and cowboys."

I know... I LOVE IT. XD.

I love this name, but I'm not sure if I would actually name a child this. It sounds good for maybe a character in a fantasy book, but not an actual child's name. Maybe for a middle name though?

Although spelled differently, Rider Strong is an actor who is probably most famous for his role in the US television series "Boy Meets World". His character was Shawn Hunter who was the best friend of Cory Matthews played by Ben Savage. The show ran from 1993-2000 on ABC.

Rider has been in various other television shows for only one episode here and there. He has also been in movies.

Red Ryder was a famous fictional cowboy in the 40s. Red Ryder BB guns are an offshoot of his popularity and is the present Raphie Parker desperately wants in the (1983) film _A Christmas Story_" (The one with the leg lamp.) It's also a truck rental company.

You'd have to shoot me with a BB gun several times for me to name my child this.

This name is ridiculous, hideous, and the kid bearing it is going to get a lot of nasty jokes.

John Ryder, the psychotic serial killer from the classic thriller "The Hitcher", played by Rutger Hauer.

Ryder? Seriously? "U-Haul" would be a better name for a child.

I have seen this name used for girls, too. There's a girl named Ryder on Syfy Channel's "Destination Truth". She is a pretty blonde. She has been teased on the show because Ryder is a truck company. I think it's a cute name, though. I like it for a girl, not a boy.

No, no, no. I'm not even going to say how inappropriate I think this name sounds.
-- Chrila96  12/22/2010
I can't believe I like such a trendy name, but darn it, Ryder is a simply divine name.
I don't like it on girls, despite the immediate thoughts of Winona Ryder.
This is just a really edgy name, and I hardly ever hear it, although I'd probably use it as a middle name.

Sir H. Rider Haggard (1856-1925), author of popular adventure novels such as "King Solomon's Mines".

His name was the inspiration for the old joke about a book called "How to Keep a Woman Happy" by Rider Haggard.

That is now all I can think of when I hear the name Ryder.

You trendy moms are going to regret naming your kid Ryder if he turns out to be a wimpy nerd.

My favorite actor Rider Strong made me love this name! It sounds so masculine and cool.
