Moya Brennan (formerly known as Máire Brennan)
This artist, who is both a member of Clannad and a solo performer, was born with the name "Máire Ní Bhraonáin", and has commercially available tracks under the names: "Moya Brennan" and "Máire Brennan". She is the sister of Enya ("Eithne Ní Bhraonáin"), and like Enya has recently anglicized the spelling of her name to avoid frequent mispronunciations. Thus, the current "official" form is "Moya".
