Gender: F Meaning of Zelig: "blessed, happy" Origin of Zelig: Yiddish, variation of Selig

Woody Allen introduced us to the name Zelig as the ever-morphing title character of his 1983 film, and then Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage made Zelig a girls' name when he chose it for his daughter in 2011. Zelig does have an upbeat meaning though it's an undeniable quirky choice for either gender.
