don't forget "knight" is strictly an English word. The equivalent, everywhere else basically refers to horseman or just warrior. If we were having this conversation in a different language the answer would be obvious lol
Edit: But yes, most germanic languages use some word for Rider as their name for the Knight.
it is kind of weird that the english didn’t use a word for rider when describing a riding person. Instead they took a word for servant/Young boy indtead.
It might have something to do with france, normans and the Word chevalier. Coupled with france being the cultural dominant power
