    No, I meant its a great name. They should have "kept" it for the game.

    No Link was called Link because in many of the games, he was the only link between alternate worlds. He was the link that kept the people together or he was the important figure in the game. Anything can be looked Symbolically and there are probably documented evidence around about why kirby was named kirby or samus, samus. Either way it really doesnt matter, if the name is dorky and silly and has no purpose or has hardly any significance then the hero probably sucks.. like Eragon. Taking Dragon and replacing it with an E is hardly any creative license.

    Very Possible also. Its next to impossible to really understand why the creators named Link Link. Infact its pretty hard to determine why anyone names anything for any reason what so ever. Unless theres a paper somewhere where it has the creator saying he named it for this reason, then next best bet is to try to see symbolism.

    Actually, here's what really happened:

    See, the guys at Nintendo were trying to find a name for their hero.

    They tried looking for symbolism, and maybe bring a name form it... But they couldn't think of anything. The English developers were yelling at them to figure out a name, and to understand them, the Japanese developers grabbed their English to Japanese handbook.

    After having a very slow argument, the Japanese struck an idea.

    They flipped pages around randomly, with their eyes closed. Then they turned the book over, keeping the page. Then they had a contest to see who could hold their breath the longest. The winner was 43 seconds.

    So they took the number 43, and found the 43rd word on that page.

    Link.
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.

    FYI: Donkey Kong is only called 'Donkey' because someone misread what was wrote down. Obviously it was meant to be 'Monkey Kong' but 'Donkey' worked so well that they left it.

    Good old Japanese to English cock-ups!
