What character’s full name is Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkel Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs?

Answer: Wizard of Oz

Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkle Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs, also known as the “Wizard of Oz” is a fictional character in the Land of Oz created by author L. Frank Baum.

The character was further popularized by a stage play and several movies, including the classic 1939 film. L. Frank Baum’s beloved character reveals his full name to Dorothy in the fourth novel of the Oz series, Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz.

He explains that his initial plan was to shorten it by using just his initials – until he realized that it spelled out O.Z.P.I.N.H.E.A.D. So he decided to just go with Oz.
