Despite the Zelda association, I would totally use this name for a daughter, I love the sound of it. The problem is, in my language, it is pronounced just like "såra" which means "to wound" Not the greatest name to be shouting at the mall, maybe?

In Spanish the word 'zorra' means 'fox' and is actually used as an insult towards girls meaning something along the lines of 'prostitute', unfortunately. :(

To pronounce 'zorra' in Spanish you would roll the letter 'r'. (You can hear the pronunciation in this link: http://www.forvo.com/word/zorra/)

I do happen to like this name, though I thought I'd warn everyone how it would be quite embarassing to have this name in the country Spain.
