According to the Zelda wikia, a maiden mentions him as a thief who turned into Ganon. The gaps in my Zelda lore knowledge are starting to show. I wasn't aware of this, thank you. Even so, if that sort of reference is the extent of the mentions of Ganondorf, then it doesn't really change the fact that Ganon is the one always referred to when talking about the evils of the world, not Ganondorf. To the people, Ganondorf would likely just be the origin of Ganon and not regarded as a great evil to be feared in his own right, if only because of the contrast between the two's effects on the world. Again, it's just speculation, but I do believe there's a contrast being made in these games by the developers and that the name does have some significance. Perhaps not exactly what I'm proposing, but I suppose we'll find out soon enough.
