    Merged since you made two threads about the same thing for some reason.

    Maybe Nintendo paid Robin Williams to name his daughter Zelda.

    It's been said but it bears repeating: He explicitly states that he named her after the game series in the video. So I don't see the point of poking at the fact that it's a real name, since it doesn't really... well, tell us anything we didn't already know. :/

    Anyway, I remember seeing it on here before, but it's pretty cool. I dig the guy for many reasons. :3
    PvE:er to the bone. Plays a druid. Also plays DotA and a whole bunch of other stuff. Listens to mostly everything.

    Didn't know that, I love Robin Williams even more know lol, his smile and his eyes when he laughs AND his daughter's name is Zelda? <3

    Like stated before though, anyone with that name who isn't famous in any way would get bullied till the end of time lol.
    I prefer Zelda over a normal name though.. At least he has a story behind why he named his daughter that way rather than 'well we picked Mary cause it sounds better than Carly'.

    That's awesome and I would have no problems naming my kid Midna, Tetra, Anju, Aryll, Darmani, or fucking Daphnes "Nohansen".

    From a personal point of view and knowing that i do like to be original, i would prolly consider the name Elune for my baby girl and even Alleria... Ive seen pretty nasty names after all and those are nothing compared to what ive seen :P

    Regardless of where it came from, Zelda is an awesome name. If I had a child, they'd have a super sweet name too.

    Nope. It's really old news, heard about it forever ago when I was little.

    I would so call my daughter something like sylvanas or alextraza lol. But it would probaly be a bit cruel to call a kid malcygos lol.

    I think that's awesome! Didnt know he was a closet nerd lol, and Zelda is a cool name, I know a couple of people called Zelda.

    On one hand I like odd names because we cant go another decade of "James" and "Michaels"..

    I'm naming my first born Leighton Dont really know any with that name, though I know it is common, just not "as common"...

    I'd name my daughter Mai if i could get away with it. Main protagonist in the 2003 shooter ONI. I'd try for konoko which is her code name but i think that would be no dice.
