    Zelda Williams is 20 years old and an actress this is seriously old news and compared to what other actors call their children (Jason Lee from My Name is Earl named is son "Pilot Inspektor" NO JOKE) getting named after a video game character aswell as one of the greatest franchises of all time is actually quite desirable

    Zelda is actually a real first name in North Africa countries.
    I already seen it at my work (I'm delivering ID card), usually (always?) older than the Nintendo Franchise.
    I think it's not a common name for children anymore.


    I don't know what to think about the girls name specially given from a game reference.
    I think it's not worse than naming your child after a name you read in a book, or heard in a movie. If both parents agree, and it's not extravagant, I think it's ok.


    PS : I already had even more forgotten names, like this young man (25) named "Napoléon", that might be weird at school.

    Three words:

    COOLEST.
    NAME.
    EVER.



    I doubt that she will get teased in school. Most children don't play LoZ, what with FPS's getting all of the attention. And if they did, they'd know that the name is the best name and they'll be jealous.

    She can always get it changed if she doesn't like it.

    Zelda in the Legend of Zelda was actually named after Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald. So it's a real name.

    Also, it's better than naming them "Blanket" or some retarded crap like that.

    Yeah, this is kinda old news.

    Williams is also a videogame and table-top game enthusiast.

    Well this actually is unique to name a child after a franchise itself. Zelda in this case is a unique name, although, I won't advise naming children after franchises because it can later become annoying when someone question your children about their name and the franchise at the same time.
