According to author Gregory Maguire, the name of the Wicked Witch of the West, tragic antiheroine of The Wizard of Oz. From the initials of Oz author L. Frank Baum: eLFaBa.

Also the "title" character of the musical Wicked, based on Maguire's book Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.

Used as an epithet for one whose actions are cold-hearted (as in the classic view of a wicked witch), or used sarcastically when one's actions are misguidedly noble or terroristic in nature. (In Maguire's book, Elphaba spent several years as part of a terrorist group fighting the injustices the Wizard caused for the people and Animals of Oz.)
Example of sarcastic use in response to miguidedly noble intent:

Annoyed, but Slightly Calmer Editor: Whatever you say, Elphaba.

A tall misunderstood green skinned, and totally awesome fictional character in the book, and musical Wicked. While portrayed by Idina Menzel on Broadway, green witches have never looked so damn good!
"Dude who is that totally hot chick!?"
"The green one? Dude the green witch?"
" Yeah!"

"Oh that's just Elphaba"
"She is freaking hot!"
"Wow....."
