With _ Oz the Great and Powerful _gearing up to make a very magical splash into movie theaters across the country, we figured it was only a matter of time before the stellar cast, crew and characters made their way into your hearts — again!

Growing up, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz _ _was one of my favorite films. I watched it with my parents, begged my grandparents to watch it with me, reenacted scenes with my cousins at every possible instance, and even now in times of trouble, I click my ruby red heels together and pray I’ll end up back in Kansas.

So today, we’ve put the best of both worlds together for your future baby girls and baby boys. We’ve got the sweetest baby names brought to you by Oz the Great and Powerful, with a little inspiration from the original 1939 cast and crew thrown in there!
