    Yes. See, the Zelda games began as old-school Nintendo- not much was put in store by the, heh, story. You were supposed to name the main character, but he had to have a default name just in case. Hence, Link. But The Legend of Insert Name Here or Link is not a good title, so they chose to call it The Legend of Essentially the One Thing All Zelda Games Have in Common, Namely Zelda. The Legend of Zelda.

    There is probably a more anecdotal account behind it, but I think I got their general thinking down.

    You know that in LoZ:Linkīs awakening,
    they didnīt put a Zelda in it.

    But think: Legend of Link sounds pretty stupid!

    Yes it does sound stupid. The game does revolove around Zelda because she is the one motivating Link to do what he does. Didnt they have one beofre Links awakening? If so maybe they did not want to change the series name so...

    I read the manual, so i knew exactly what was up, always. But I wonder, if ZELDA is the main princess, don't you think it's a good chance that she'll play an even bigger role in LOZ: Twilight Princess than in other games like the Ocarina Of Time?

    Lord Mune's right. The truth is, Link's name isn't necessarily Link. His name is whatever you choose for it to be. Link is just a default name to use in case you cant think of a name for him.

    Wouldn't it be because Zelda, in those older games, was the actual point of the game (to save her)?

    i think that it is called legend of zelda becouse it is a game that you have to save pricess zelda and legend of link sounds stupid so they chose the name of the person that needed to be saved in this case zelda
