Wizard of Ak?

While working on a fantasy story one day, L. Frank Baum happened to spot a filing cabinet -- marked "O-Z" -- and suddenly had a name for the home of his creation: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

[Baum's name for his Hollywood home? Ozcot.]

["When Baum moved to Pasadena, he erected in his garden a huge birdcage stocked with songbirds where -- evidently oblivious to the potential of overhead bombardment -- he wrote his books."]
