Pryde - Origination of name

Why do we spell our name with a 'y' instead of an 'i'?

The name Pryde originated from the nailplates previously used in South Africa, named Pryda which were manufactured and imported from New Zealand. Although the name originated from the Pryda nailplate brand and Pryde used it when they first started manufacturing roof trusses, Pryde's truss department has been using the Mitek nailplates and roof design system since 1997.
