Ryder, one of the current favorite er-ending boys' names, has been in the spotlight since Kate Hudson and her rocker husband Chris Robinson chose it for their son in 2004; it has jumped nearly seven hundred places in the past decade, now at a high Number 98, in the top 100 for the second year in a row. Very popular in several provinces of Canada, Ryder was chosen by John Leguzamo for his son and adorns Boy Meets World star Ryder Strong.
In the past, Ryder was much more prevalent as a surname, as in American Old Master painter Albert Pinkham Ryder and Brideshead Revisited protagonist Charles Ryder. Not all came by it legitimately, however--Winona Ryder was born Winona Horowitz.
Trivia note: The Ryder Cup is a biennial golf tournament with competing teams from Europe and the US.
