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.

Ah, that explains it.

The Chinese seem to do whatever they want in regards to copyrights and trademarks.

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.

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.
