A couple Oz characters have had variants in their names throughout the Oz books. Which variant do you use?

How does your bug woggle? Woggle Bug? Wogglebug? Woggle-Bug?

And how does your tik tok? Tiktok? Tik Tok? Tik tok? Tik-tok? Tik-Tok?

After spending many hours over The Woggle-Bug Book, I call the former the Woggle-Bug.

Similarily, Tik-Tok of Oz's title convinced me to call him Tik-Tok.

I, personally, prefer Wogglebug and Tik-Tok.

Now, here are some for you! Nome or Gnome? Omby Amby or Wantowin Battles? The Good Witch of the North, Tattypoo, or Orin? And after reading that essay in the Winkie Convention book, Nonestic or Nonentic?

*Nome
*Omby Amby
*Good Witch of the North (Tattypoo sounds way too silly for me)
*Nonestic

I could be in the wrong thread for this, but how would/do you say the Charm for the Golden Caps:

Specifically the "Zuzzy" bit?   Do you say the 'u' as in "oo" or "dud"?
