Why is it called the Ocarina of Time?

Link doesn't use the Ocarina to travel through time, instead he uses the Master sword. This is one serious blunder; it should be called The Legend of Zelda: The sword that travels through time.

Without the "Ocarina of Time" he wouldn't have been able to pull the Master Sword since you need that and the 3 Gems.

If you want to get technical, you don't actually time travel in OoT. Pulling out the sword puts Link into a state of stasis where he remains frozen, but continues to age until he becomes old enough to be accepted by the master sword as the hero of time.

The Ocarina is used to travel through time in Majora's Mask.

the sword doesn't allow him to travel through time - the sages do. why else do you think it happens in a building called temple of time?

Yes, but the Ocarina doesn't allow him to traverse through time but, the sword does.

The Ocarina of Time opens the Door of Time at the Temple of Time so you can get the Master Sword and... well... be sent forward through time.

Still, you can put the Master Sword back into the pedestal and be sent back to being a child.

Zelda uses the Ocarina of Time to send link back to his own time at the end so it does have time travel ability, as well as it being used in MM for time travel.

The events of Majora's mask are not relevant to what happens in the Ocarina of time. The sword does allow Link to travel through time; he can freely traverse between two points.

The item is called the ocarina of time. The game was named after the item. Whether or not it involves time travel is completely irrelevant.,

You missed his first point; Zelda plays the ocarina at the end of OoT to send you back in time. So, even if you didn't time travel with it technically the whole game (even though you travel by transportation), Zelda plays it at the end and I guess you could say she awakens the ocarina's time travelling abilities because she's a royal family member. Really, you could argue that the game led up to that because of the title. Either way, time travel was used by the ocarina in OoT.
