    The Most Important Zelda Question of All Time

    ... Why in god's name is The Legend of Zelda called The Legend of Zelda?

    Yes, perhaps TLoZ has a better ring to it than the Legend of Link. And yes, you can typically always name Link something different. But is there something more behind the series' name than such a simple theory? Discuss!

    And more importantly tell, if you know exactly why the name is the way it is. Because hot damn am I curious.

    Perhaps if Zelda had the Triforce of power... Perhaps.

    Perhaps it's because the games revolve around Zelda being a key element in the games. Like how you have to protect/save her from ganondorf or some other nefarious villain and how she plays a major part in sealing/defeating them. I could go on to include info from Skyward Sword, but I know a certain moderator hasn't had a chance to play through it yet, so I'll leave it at that for now.

    Possibly so, I've read multiple times that before TLoZ had a story, the game's point wasn't saving Hyrule or anything, it was to save Zelda. And since there wasn't yet any real story, Link was just a filler name, not the name of countless heroes across time; not yet, anyways.

    I really hope it's something more clever than that, though... Not that I'd blame Ninty for it. The NES isn't renowned for it's amazing games' story lines.

    Srs answer is based on more cryptic Zelda info:


    The 8-bit Zelda games are about a character named Zelda who was put into a never-ending sleep because of her brother. Their father the King passed on and his children only inherited two pieces of the Triforce, the third was hidden away for a reason. A magician close to the King informed the Prince that the King told Zelda something about the missing piece before he died, so the Prince interogated his sister but she wouldn't speak. The magician threatened to put her into a never ending sleep if she didn't tell him what he wanted to know, but she wouldn't say a thing. The magician cast the spell, but the Prince didn't want that but couldn't stop him either. After the spell was cast Zelda fell on the spot, and the magician breathed his last. Stricken with grief, the Prince placed his sister in an alter until she awakens, and so that the tragedy is never forgotten he ordered that all females born into the Royal Household shall be named Zelda.
    In Zelda II, Link embarked on a quest to find that missing piece of the Triforce which awakened that sleeping princess, the first Princess Zelda.

    Hurrah for timeline theories!

    And thus, TLoZ got even more confusing to me.
