    Default Enya "About Us"

    Someone asked about the connection between Enya the singer and Enya the uke/guitar maker. Apparently, there is none. This is from their web site.

    Enya is an old Irish name, not unique to one person. I still have to chuckle every time I see "Kaka" clearly a poorly thought out attempt to steal a little notoriety from Kala.

    I had a laugh when I saw that, too.

    Yes, and it sounds funny to English speaking people. Barry Maz commented on the name in a review.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Still, copying the entire logo is a bridge too far: a handwritten signature with all-lower case letters, with only slight differences in the 'e' and the 'a'...

    I wonder if that Chinese "signature" would pass for a legal signature for Enya, the singer. She made some great music, and I guess the uke company thinks that ordinary people can make great music with their wooden Enyas. I got a concert "kit" from Amazon for $18.21 and then a Tenor for $50.55 that I converted to a resonator. They offer a lot for the money.
