Ryder is a gender-neutral name of Irish origin, similar to the name Ryan, which translates to "little king". The name is derived from the Gaelic words "righ" and "an," which together mean "little king". It is also related to the Irish surname O'Riain. The name Ryder, like Ryan, has been used increasingly for both boys and girls since the 1970s. Ryan, the original form of the name Ryder, has a long history of popularity in Ireland and the United Kingdom. In Ireland, "Ryan" was ranked at number 10 in 2005 and number 14 in 2006. In Scotland, "Ryan" was the most popular name given to newborn boys every year from 1994 to 1998. In Northern Ireland, "Ryan" did not appear in the top ten most common male names for newborns in 1975, but was in the top five from 2000 to 2003. However, the popularity of the name Ryan for newborn children has been overtaken by the Irish spellings "Rian" and "Rín" in recent years.
