Does anyone know why they chose the name, The Enid?

Did they have some Druid connections?

Robert John Godfrey (of The Enid): "It was the ace of trumps in a Bridge game; It was the washing up after a party, when someone had to clear up the mess - that was known as The Enid. Anything of any importance was known as The Enid long before the band was thought of, and in a sense it was one of those private little jokes, but when we came to look for a name for the band, particularly when we had a manager who was insisting that the name of the band ought to be Thanksgiving, which I really could not tolerate, I mean, I just wasn't going to have that, The Enid seemed the obvious choice."

So, yeah...there's that.

Thank you

I thought that it might have something to do with the Enaid from Druidry.

Especially when so many of their songs seem to have a druid connection.

I have been wondering the same thing for quite some time. Interesting story. Thanks.
