Ryder Origin and Meaning

The name Ryder is a girl's name meaning "post messenger or cavalryman".

Some parents are choosing this popular boys name for their daughters (in the US there were well over 100 female Ryders born last year). Is it the connection to Winona that makes this feel somewhat more feminine than some other boys’ names?
