Your Link to the Past

Hey guys,
Just wondering how many people name their character Link compared to another name.
I normally have all 3 files as Link, and it is always the name I use on the first playthrough of the game. Does anyone name Link crazy names? So the choices to vote in this poll are...Just Calling him Link, or, Calling him something else.....
If you have ever come up with crazy character names...please share! :)

There's something not quite right about changing the name. My wife always uses her own name, and I complain about it.

Link is always my first playthrough/file name. The other files usually have other random names I like. Like Alphonse. Or Azure. But mostly Saga. Just those four. Link, Saga, Alphonse, and Azure. But I never use my own name. And I'm never going to. I don't like to do that. And also, as far as the name of an epic hero goes, I don't think Zak will cut it.

I usually name him Link, but sometimes I'll give him a "generic" name like Buddy or Dude. In some parts it makes for funny dialogue e.g. the Great Deku Tree saying "Dude, the time has come to test thy courage ..." More often than not though, it's Link.

Hmm... I never really thought about it... I just always put my name in there, just for the fun of it. I know his name is Link, but I like seeing my name since I'm playing the game. But that's just me:D.

Well. I sometimes put Link, because I like him to be the same. The first Zelda game I played was Twilight Princess, and I named him Zeus. I like the Greek culture by the way. Then I have named him David, Ares, and Fred. I really don't know why, but the names just pop into my head. I have started just keeping him Link though. I once called him Evil and Epona.
