Meiju Enho, born in 1981 in Finland, is the former keyboard player of the Finnish Viking/folk metal band Ensiferum.[1] Meiju joined the band in 2001 following the release of their debut album Ensiferum and played on all subsequent releases until her departure in 2007.

Meiju has also performed as a touring musician for Finntroll, another Finnish folk metal band, when their regular keyboard player Trollhorn was unavailable.

It was announced that Meiju had left the Ensiferum on September 10, 2007. in a statement on the band's website. The official announcement read:

I’ve now reached the moment in my life when I need to stay out of the battle. It’s time for somebody else to take my place in Ensiferum. These almost 6 years have been totally unforgettable but also rough. After giving my absolutely 100% to this music, playing and shows I now feel exhausted but happy; it has been worth it. Nevertheless, I feel now it’s time for me to head out for new adventures.

Since 2012, Enho has been the keyboardist for the finnish alt/folk metal band Mamyth. She is also married to former Finntroll drummer Samu "Beast Dominator" Ruotsalainen.
