The name Zelma was given to 13 girls born in the US in 2015.
Ah, I personally think this name is beautiful. It was the name of my brother's grandmother, and I'll always remember it. I don't think it's witchy, more mystical and almost ethereal. Definitely better than naming your child a boring present name.
I don't think those saying the name Zelma sounds "witchy" necessarily mean it as an insult. They just mean it has a kind of... "magical" edge to it. I think using a Z instead of an S helps.
Zelma is my wife, a Hispanic Jew by ancestory;I had never heard the name either until I met her, born and raised in Brooklyn, NY by Puerto Rican parents. I see no need to say a name sounds like a witch, we all have our given names. Just saying.
This is indeed an unusual and quirky name! It's a GREAT name for a fictional story or something. :D.

In Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, the younger Thénardier daughter is called Zelma by Cosette, their ward. Zelma's formal name is Azelma.
No offense, but it sounds like the name of a witch.
