Could someone please tell me how to pronounce this
name? There is plenty of information all over the
internet about her, but no one says how to
pronounce it. I have looked at pronunciation
guides, but nothing seems definitive, and I would
really like to know for sure as we are considering
the name for a baby.

Here is a website with a little information about
her legends. www.gn.apc.org/inquirer/craft.html

Thanks in advance.

It would be pronounced as MAKH-uh in Irish. The 'kh' pronounced like the 'ch' in chutzpah or Achtung: To might want to bring that closer to English pronunciation.
