If you name your little girl Zelda, you would not be naming her after a damsel in distress. Even though Link saves her from Ganondorf in the series, she has a couple of bad-ass alter egos. She becomes a ninja named Sheik in Ocarina of Time. She also becomes a pirate captain named Tetra in The Wind Waker. Zelda means “strong woman” in German, which matches the Legend of Zelda protagonist. Princess Zelda is not the only powerful woman with this name. She shares her name with 1920’s writer, Zelda Fitzgerald, who was the wife of the Great Gatsby writer. Marilyn Monroe also went by an alter ego named Zelda Zonk.
