I've met the sort of people who think that Link's name is Zelda.
I bought a baby naming book a few years ago to aid me in naming characters when I write. In the girls' name section, it has Zelda. It says Zelda is a girls' name but that it's the name of the red haired male protagonist in the games of the same name. **facepalm** Yes, Zelda has red hair in some of her incarnations but she is most definitely not the hero but the one being rescued.
