Zelda: baby girl name popularity and meaning


This name is a diminutive of the Greek name Griselda, meaning "gray battle." Maybe for modern times, this means your little Zelda will have a problem with colors she deems "too blah." Dress her in bright hues just in case.



Famous people named Zelda:

Novelists Zelda Popkin and Zelda Fitzgerald; actresses Zelda Sears, Zelda Williams, Zelda Rubenstein, and Zelda Harris.

Fun fact:

We'd be remiss not to mention the most famous Zelda of all ... the princess in Nintendo's wildly popular "Legend of Zelda" games.
