Name Meaning

English: from Middle English stride ‘(long) pace’ (from stride(n) ‘to walk with long steps’), presumably a nickname for someone with long legs or whose gait had a purposeful air, although Reaney and Wilson suggest it may also have been a topographic name for someone who lived by a crossing point over a stream, presumably no wider than a stride. They cite as an example a place known as The Strid, in North Yorkshire.
