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.
