On Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time, Link's horse is named Epona. It's a very lovely name.

Pronounced Ee-po-na.

It's pronouunced "e-PO-na", not "Ee-po-na". Yes, this name seems likely to have been the origin of the name "Eponine".

The name Eponine is supposed to be derived from this.

I like the name, it's nice. I've never heard it before.

Epona was also the Goddess of birds, the moon and enchantment.

I played too much Zelda as a child and that is the main reason I love this name.

I think this is a good name if you're a horse, especially if you're a horse from a video game. I would not name a person this.

Although I don't think it's a particularly good name for a person in this day and age, it still remains one of my favorites due in part to my love of horses, and also because it sounds quite lovely.

All I can think of is Epona's Song from the Zelda games playing in my head. This is a nice name for a horse, but not a person.

I prefer Eponine, but Epona is nice too.

Epona isn't only named in Zelda. It existed far before in various games and anime. In fact, its first n64 appearance is from a game called Quest 64, where the character was an elderly woman with ridiculous long hair... like a mane.

I love names from mythology. Sure, it reminds some people of a video game, but really it's a nice name.
