Growing up with a unique name my kids had to have one too. I fell in love with this name when I first had heard it about 10 years ago. Not knowing if I would have another boy I chose Ryder. We do get teased a lot for this name. Hubby is a Golf Course superintendent at a golf course that hosted the Ryder Cup championship recently. Everyone assumes our son was named Ryder after the Ryder Cup but that isn't the case.

I named my son this because I love the fact it's different. Plus I've been riding horses since I learned to walk, so it fits. I did give him 2 middle family names since that's tradition, but I wanted him to have something uniquely his. His brother is Garrett John-David.

I love this name, just wondering what nicknames you use with it!!:)

Ryder is my middle name, received almost 33 years ago in 1975, because my parents knew a guy whose name was Ricky Ryder and thought it sounded neat. I've never seen it on a list of baby names before today. Folks who know my middle name probably assume it's after the moving trucks. B^P
