Why not LoL by Lethalityrush Why not LoL by Lethalityrush
Change one letter in LoZ and BAM! You'll have LoL.

Still, this might have prevented people from mistaking Link as Zelda.

I'm pretty sure everyone thought his name was Zelda when they first played

Mno. Some people make use of their association cortexs and can tell that a default name for an rpg's protagonist is most likely how the company identifies with him/her.
To have thought his name was zelda means that a person had to be either dyslexic (which is arguably just minimal willpower and illiteracy) or presumptuous.
Nothing to be ashamed of though! These are traits of children, so many who played the series could defiantly have made that mistake as they /are/ the target audience. However, do not assume at any point in time that /everyone/ is incapable of utilizing their sentience.

Legend of link sounds like poultry being funneled into my ass. "Miyamoto" /is/ weird, sure, but the design choice in title was anything but weird.
Link didn't become one of the most renown fictional characters of all time through being fueled by vanity.

but wasn't Legend of Zelda here before League of Legends came?
Google told me (after a very quick look, I admit) that League of Legends was released 2009 while Legend of Zelda's first game came out 1989 or so... ?

i think Nintendo dodged a bullet by naming the series after Zelda because since Link is just the default name and he can be given any name players want then the moment you give him his name the game becomes Legend of Dumbutt or Legend of Retard or whatever other stupid names people come up with.

I know the reason! Its because in the very first Zelda game, Link didn't have a name, he was just a nameless protagonist. That's why putting in the name Zelda gets you the second quest and not putting in the name Link. Zelda was one of the few characters with a name, and as the princess you were saving was kind of important.

Link didn't have his name until the second game in the series. Thus why the series is Legend of Zelda and not Legend of Link.

Actually, Link always had a name. Shigeru Miyamoto's statements in Hyrule Historia mention that in the first Zelda game, he named the protagonist Link because he was supposed to connect people together and was supposed to spread the scattered energy of the world throughout the ages.

Also from Hyrule Historia:

"Of course, 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. That's when the PR planner said, "Why don't you make a storybook for this game?"
He suggested an illustrated story where Link rescues a princess who is a timeless beauty with a classic appeal, and mentioned, "There's a famours American author whose wife's name is Zelda. How about giving that name to the eternal beauty?" I couldn't really get behind the book idea, but I really liked the name Zelda.
I asked him if I could use it, and he said it would be fine. And that's where the title The Legend of Zelda was born." - Shigeru Miyamoto.

or it was because link was supposed to be a woman who had the name zelda but they changed his original gender because of gender.

Yeah the question that we probably aksed ourself often enough.

My theory is that the Autor first wanted to make Zelda important, so kinda maincharacter, gave the story her name cause she story is centering around her, but actually forgot that the true actor is the forest villager next door. :XD:
