A Dog Named Zelda

I often visit a blog called HardestLevel. It is a great video game blog with lots of reviews and interesting posts about gamer culture. Today I stumbled on a post about naming pets after video game characters. The author has a dog he named "Zelda". Many others posted, that they too had named their pets after video game characters. So, this got me wondering, have any of you named your pets after games or game characters?
