Answer: Robin Williams

Robin Williams was an all-around gaming fan—the famous comedian loved table top games and video games of all sorts. In fact, his love of video gaming led him to give his daughter a name that hasn’t seen much use outside of the 1920s.

Born in 1989, Zelda Williams is named after none other than Princess Zelda from the wildly successful Nintendo franchise, The Legend of Zelda. She and her father shared a love of gaming; both appeared in a 2011 commercial promoting the Nintendo 3DS and the 3DS version of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Later that year, she was the special guest host for a symphony presentation of The Legend of Zelda music marking the 25th anniversary of the series.
