Yeah, not going to lie, fan of the game. DH is too grin

I love it! I think it's pretty. It is the only name we've been able to agree on. Out of thousands.

Is it ridiculous? I'm worrying about the reactions we'll have blush

Love it!
Robin Williams daughter is called Zelda 🙂

You're worrying with good reason, it's a fairly ridiculous name for a real life human baby.


How about Sonic?

WellErrr Wed 10-Aug-16 19:36:32

HOWEVER I think the answers you get will depend on the age of respondents wink

OohMavis Wed 10-Aug-16 19:37:36

How about Sonic?

That's DS' name actually.

I'm so old that my first thought was Terrahawks.

Madbengalmum Wed 10-Aug-16 19:38:04

Like it, the name has been around for alot longer than the game.

OohMavis Wed 10-Aug-16 19:38:34

Yeah I'm anticipating lots of 'what, you didn't like Pikachu then?' comments! That's what's making me hesitate somewhat.

Madbengalmum Wed 10-Aug-16 19:38:42

Nyborg, mine too.

booellesmum Wed 10-Aug-16 19:38:47

Lovely name.
If that's what you both agree on then go with it.

Many, many years ago I worked with a Zelda. She was a dreadful woman, used to sleep on her desk, boil eggs in the tea kettle, and was bone idle, so sorry - it's not a name I would consider!

minatiae Wed 10-Aug-16 19:39:04

I like it. It's a real name. It's Yiddish I think and has been common in the past but not so much in the past ~100 years!

If you like it, go for it.

Magazinepile Wed 10-Aug-16 19:39:31

Think it's cute, original and pretty. Go for it sweetie! X

Buttwing Wed 10-Aug-16 19:39:37

Sorry terrahawks for me too.

Whitelisbon Wed 10-Aug-16 19:40:01

Me and dh had our biggest ever argument over the name zelda, I'm still gutted that he won and dc5 has a boring name in comparison.
Go for it.

LynetteScavo Wed 10-Aug-16 19:40:44

Well, Zelda in Grange Hill wasn't very nice, but I knew an absolutely beutiful and sweet child called Zelda once, so now I like it. It's nothing like Sonic to me.

augustusdecimus Wed 10-Aug-16 19:40:50

I do like it. But I would think of the game every time I heard it or spoke to her.

Queenbean Wed 10-Aug-16 19:41:09

I love Zelda. She was the aunt in Sabrina the teenage witch.

Go for it, but only if you call your son Salem

WellErrr Wed 10-Aug-16 19:41:23

Ooh I just remembered Sabrina the Teenage Witch! Didn't she have an Aunt Zelda??

How about Princess Toadstool? Or Zena Warrior Princess? grin

Sorry OP. I don't actually dislike the name, I'm just an 80s child!

WellErrr Wed 10-Aug-16 19:41:43

Cross post Queen!

MotherOfGlob Wed 10-Aug-16 19:42:07

Maybe Google 'Zelda Terrahawks' before you make a decision....grin

reader77 Wed 10-Aug-16 19:42:09

Pet Sematary confused

LewisAndClark Wed 10-Aug-16 19:43:04


Will always mean Terrahawks to me.
