There's no character named Melinda in either the original 1900 book edition or the 1939 film version of "The Wizard of Oz."

Specifically, the only character with a similar name is Glinda the Good Witch. Glinda also appears in "Wicked," the successful novel and musical based upon "The Wizard of Oz." In "Wicked," author Gregory Maguire (b. June 9, 1954) introduces a character who is in neither "The Wizard of Oz" book or film and who has a name similar to Melinda: Melena is the mother of Elphaba Thropp, the Wicked Witch of the West.
