For those of you thinking Once Upon a Time's take on the The Wicked Witch of the West was going to follow after Wicked, think again: we now know the witch's name, and it sure isn't Elphaba.

As TV Guide's Natalie Abrams tweeted at the beginning of the week, in the Once Upon a Time universe, the Wicked Witch is named Zelena. We like it — it fits right into a world where Snow White is a perfectly normal thing to call someone.

What else do we know about the witch?

Well, she's obviously going to be a big part of the rest of the season, since it looks like she's the main antagonist. She will also have a connection with several of the characters we already know and care about. Not only will she have a bone to pick with Regina, but she will also share a connection with "other characters as well." Oh, and don't worry: we're getting the good witch, too.

What do you think of this name? Let us know in the comments below!

Catch the next episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, March 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
