Anyone remember Nickelodeon Magazine (the old one that ran from 1993 to 2009)? The mascot of Nickelodeon Magazine was a Lakeland Terrier named Zelda van Gutters.

It's classic and strong. Even if people do think of Princess Zelda, she is a pretty good character.
Anyway, to me, this name gives the impression of a confident person, though she seems like the type who wouldn't like her name.
This is one of the few names that I prefer as a full name rather than a nickname.

Very pretty. I don't like Griselda, in fact I almost hate it, but Zelda has appeal in it.

I love this name! It's not so overly common that people groan when they hear it, but it's not the kind of name that people ask if it's made up or not.

I named my blonde-haired daughter Zelda and we get nothing but compliments. It is a strong name with one foot in vintage glam and the other in modern spunk. As gamers ourselves, we don't mind the video game association, but it makes me think more of the roaring twenties and Zelda Fitzgerald.

My friends named their daughter this, and I'll admit, my first reaction was "As in the legend of?" But they named her for Zelda Fitzgerald and I can't imagine any other name for their little girl (she is 4 now).

These days many of the younger generation think of the game Legend of Zelda, when hearing the name, which I think is okay because she is after all a Princess. However, aside from being the wife of F. Scott and being Sabrina's Aunt and several other noted personalities, I carry the name with pride, Zelda is my given birth name, I have known it to mean (Warrior, The Heroin, Pride of, short for Griselda ) and so on. I am a 4'9" female that has accomplished much in life and most that meet me respect me or are intimidated by me because I don't give up or back down from anything. I am passionate, caring, will go to battle for the underdog and GOD HELP YOU IF YOU HURT MY LOVED ONES, I take great pride in the name I carry, as most do, if they own up to the name. Think about it, if you're really honest with yourself, doesn't the meaning of your name actually describe you? Be honest. Mine does. It even defines me, Zelda The Warrior, The Princess, The Heroin, The Mom, The Friend, The Girl next door,

Zelda is such a pretty name! It's quite sad that people associate it with a video game! Zelda is one of my favorite names, because it's old fashioned and rare. It's got an aura of mystery and flappers, thanks to Zelda Fitzgerald.

There's nothing wrong with people thinking of the video game when they hear the name. Thanks to the princess, I think of beauty, wisdom, kindness, and grace when I hear it. The bad thing would be that people would think of Link when they hear it.

Zelda can also be a short form of Giselda, a name which is also found spelled as Gizelda (mostly in Brazil). Giselda itself is the more modern form of the ancient Germanic name Giselhild - also see the entry for Giselda in the Submitted Names Database.

It's a really nice name, but unfortunately most people will probably immediately think of The Legend of Zelda.

This name is so beautiful, and much better then the name its derived from, Griselda. It reminds me of a beautiful fairy, or princess, thanks to the Legend of Zelda connection, which I like. I also love the connection to Zelda Fitzgerald.

This name is beautiful and unique. It does seem a bit hard to see a modern child with this name, but it always makes me think of the Zelda game series, which is a plus.

I really love this name, not just because I love the Zelda game series.
This name sounds unique and futuristic--and it reminds me of gold. I can totally see a spunky toddler Zelda as well as a teenager and older woman. Love this name :)

Zelda and Hilda are the aunts of Sabrina on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Plus everyone on TV has a scary great Aunt Zelda.

Zelda Kelberman Metz is one of only several score of survivors of Sobibór. This young woman, originally from Holland, helped to plan and carry out the mass revolt, uprising, and escape in the camp, and was one of perhaps only sixty people who managed to evade the massive manhunt that went on for days afterward.

My name is Zaldy which is a masculine form of the name!

Correction on my comment up there. My name Zaldy is not actually a masculine form of Zelda, but I thought it was back when I was a 12 year old in 2009. My name is Filipino in origin.

I really like this name. My mother said her parents were considering naming her Zelda, but she got Alison. Very interesting, considering the uniqueness of one and how plain the other is.

I think this is a very strong yet elegant name for a girl. Despite the Legend of Zelda association, I quite like it.

A favorite amongst all the game nerds, who unfortunately will never have kids in order to use it. Haha, I'm just teasing, I have to admit, it is a very pretty name. Me likes. :]

I love this name. It's got to be the classiest name apart from the Legend of Zelda games. I love watching my brothers play that game.

It's that kind of name that can either make or break the graceful princess, the sweet book nerd or a mischievous fairy. I guess you can say the name's versatile!

Zelda is a given name meaning "female warrior". And a nickname for the feminine name Griselda which means "dark battle".

Yes! Pet Semetary is all I think of when I hear this name. That and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. I always found the idea of two siblings called "Rachel" and "Zelda" strange though, for some reason. I would kind of like to see this name make a comeback, but I would never personally use it.

Zelda was the name of Rachel's older sister with meningitis in Pet Semetary. Rachel is haunted by the memory of her sister lying in bed, choking to death on her tongue.

Hehehehe. A fairy with a bag full of evil? Yeah, maybe. For it me it just reminds me of The Legend Of Zelda. Maybe that's because I LOVE it. Ah, but I would sadly not name a child this. She might get ridiculed because of that. "Look who it is Princess Zelda! Have you found your Link (that's the hero of the series) yet"? Well, I might change my opinion later on. I met lots of people who know Mario (you know Mario). But when I mention Zelda, "Zelda who?". That's my opinion. If you want to name a child Zelda go ahead. It's your choice. Not mine.

I just wanted to add that Miyamoto named the game/character Zelda after Zelda Fitzgerald (American novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald's wife) because he thought the name sounded "pleasant and significant".
