    I think I'll stick to the original spelling.
    But if I ever come upon Maebh or Maedbh, then I'll know how to pronounce them... Thank you, Mide :D

    (Aarrgghh!)

    There was a legendary Queen Maedbh (who may not have been fictional-legendary) who features in one of the major heroic sagas of Irish folklore.
    If you are interested in this powerful woman whose jealousy of her husband caused a major conflict you might like to look up The Táin Bó Cuailnge. It's stirring stuff.
