    Rider vs. Ryder

    My husband and I finally agreed on a name after months of contemplation. We decided on the name Ryder/Rider. However we still haven't agreed on the spelling. I prefer the less literal spelling Ryder, because it is the more accepted form of the name. But my husband prefers Rider, because he is against spelling names with Y just to be unique and trendy. Which do you prefer? (Our lastname begins with a Z).

    Also, we are hoping to honor my sister, Kelly in the middle name, which luckily is a unisex name... but I'm not sure if Ryder Kelly sounds too great. Another possibility is Kellan, but still not too great IMO. My husband's (and FIL's) name is William... and Ryder William sounds real nice, but we are pretty obligated to put Kelly in the name since my daughter was named after my husband's sister. We cant decide. Any thoughts on that?
