The name was created by author Gregory Maguire for his novel "Wicked" (later a hit Broadway Musical) and was based upon the initials of L. Frank Baum, the author of "The Wizard of Oz," from which "Wicked" was born. The initals "L.F.B." each gave one syllable to the name: El-pha-ba. So to all you who were thinking that this is just a nonsense name, no, it is not.
