Strider Name Meaning
Probably an Americanized form of Dutch Strijder or German Streiter, a nickname for an aggressive person, an agent noun derived from Middle Low German striden, Middle High German striten ‘to fight’, or perhaps an altered spelling of German Strieder, from a Germanic personal name formed with strit, originally ‘striving’, ‘contest’, ‘quarrel’ + the agent suffix -er.
