Thread: Wicked Names
May 2nd, 2013 05:25 PM #1
Not the adjective, the noun. Last year I read Wicked (an semi-alternate Wizard of Oz backstory that follows the Wicked Witch of the West) and saw the musical (I'd HIGHLY recommend both to anyone), and I'm curious about your opinions on the names used.
Elphaba (The Wicked Witch, who is portrayed as the heroine, and I particularly loved)
Galinda/Glinda (The good witch; she changes her name in college to not have the 'a')
BoqI’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.
