Heloisa Pinheiro is known to be the lady who inspired the song "The Girl from Ipanema." That is her married name.

I'd like to be able to tell folks that the song was inspired by Heloisa ______ (maiden name), since she wasn't yet Heloisa Pinheiro at the time of said inspiration.

I've found listings for her of Heloisa Eneida Menezes Paes Pinto, Heloisa Eneida, Heloisa Pinto-Pinheiro (which implies to me a maiden name of Heloisa Pinto), and Heloisa Mendes (!?!).

Can her maiden name be rendered in two words, first name/last name? If so, what would that last name be? If not, how would it be rendered?
