Legend actually has a history (albeit rather brief) as a legitimate name. I think it even charts. Legacy, on the other hand, makes me think of a dead person's will. The sound isn't terribly attractive either. There are better noun names out there.
Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Winifred or Simon Atlas | Atlas Dov or Alice Violetta | Lucien Wilde or Lucinda Jane | Jane Lucinda or Jack Mariner | Marlowe Charles or Roscoe Thomas | Charles ' Charlie' Wallace or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Eloise Lily or Elliot Darwin | Iris Cordelia or Thea Marina | Jasper Augustus or Juniper 'June' Lovelace | Julian Felix or Judah 'Jude' Reeve
Just a grad student dreaming ahead...

Legend is cool. It's good for a boy. Legacy sounds more feminine - nn Lacy
Legend is on my list as a middle name. I'm obsessed with fairytales.
If you like Legend, then you might like Fable, Quest, Pan, Wren, Bravery, Story, Ever, Lore, Myth, Wonder, Elfe, Elvyn. A lot of these make great nn for longer names.
ex: Lore- Lorien, Lorelei, Elora. Myth- Amethyst, Fable - Fabian. Ever- Everett, Everleigh, Everest. Story- Estoire, Astoria.
