Welcome to Zelda Answers. What would you like to know?

"The title of the game wasn't decided right at the beginning. I knew I wanted it to be The Legend of something, but I had a hard time figuring out what that something was going to be. Thats when the PR planner said, "Why don't you make a story book for this game?" He suggested an illestrated story where link rescues a princess who is a timeless beauty with classic appeal and he mentioned "There's a famous American author whose wife's name is Zelda. How about giving that name to the eternal beauty?"... But I really liked the name Zelda I asked him if we could use it, and he said it would be fine. And thats where the title The Legend of Zelda was born." -Shigeru Miyamoto The creator of The Legend of Zelda, Hyrule Historia page 2.
