Fun Fact: Who Nintendo Named Zelda After

Fun facts about the Legend of Zelda

Nintendo’s popular The Legend of Zelda series is named after writer F. Scott Fizgerald’s wife Zelda. The two became celebrities after their success with books. Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto explained the decision with this quote “Zelda was the name of the wife of the famous novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald. She was a famous and beautiful woman from all accounts, and I liked the sound of her name. So I took the liberty of using her name for the very first Zelda title.” and the rest is history.
